What is Sea Glass?




Every piece of sea glass has its own story. 

That small fragment of glass that catches your eye along the shore was once part of an object - it served a purpose, it was owned by somebody.

Eventually that object ended up in the sea. The waves and rocks broke it into pieces. It ceased to exist for the purpose for which it had originally been conceived.

These bits of glass roam on the bottom of the sea for years, decades or even centuries. They are taken around for miles by the flow of the ocean stream, being polished and smoothed by the continuous friction with the sea floor. When the sea decides to eventually release these pieces ashore, the final results can be extraordinary.

In the same way a caterpillar wraps itself into a cocoon to become a beautiful butterfly, a discarded, broken shard of glass can become a remarkable, natural gem. Sea glass is a reverse gem. Diamonds, sapphires and emeralds are created by nature and refined by man. Sea glass is made by man but refined by nature.
