Tamed Shards of the Shore!

Ah! It was some days now that I was breaking my head to write till I stumbled upon some article. We are very well aware that we cannot escape from paying the penalties of messing up with the system of the Universe. It was indeed amazing and reassuring to know when a man-made creation is surrendered to the nature’s veil how the Mother Nature beautifies and returns us as a gift – Behold! Sea glass is born!

Sea glass are just pieces of glass tossed into the water body, tumbled down for decades and appear frosted due to the chemical reaction the glass has with the alkaline water. Beach water has fresh water so the beach glass will appear less frosty.

It’s a no brainer that the color of the sea glass will be same as the color of the glass which was tossed into the sea originally.

The rarer the color, the more is the value of the sea glass. I will mention more about this in my next post!

They are found on beaches along the bays, sea, oceans even on the large river banks.

The process of collecting is called beachcombing/ seaglassing. And, the person who collects the sea glasses is called beachcomber/ seaglasser.

Some of the best places you can find sea glass are:

(Note, you need to check with the law or the property owned by the locals there that ensures you do not take sea glass. Sad, but this is true!)

Many people would be willing to buy from you to gift someone special, family members, friends for a special day to remember or as a memento to colleagues on their last day at work.
