Beach glass is beautiful. It's glass that has been in the oceans for many years and has been “rough and tumbled”. It loses it's shiny glass look, no sharp edges, etc.

I actually found 2 pieces of black beach glass, which dates back to the 1700-1800’s. It's very rare.

There are also beach glass “marbles”. They look exactly like marbles, but are glass. Those are rare as well.

Look up some pics of beach glass. A lot of people make jewelry from it.

Thanks, you two, for explaining beach glass. I like the photo of the pieces.

I’ve been going to Galveston since I was pre-school age (I’m now 70) and I’ve never seen anything like that. Also Pensacola Beach and Jacksonville Beach. ....Must be a happening only along the Northeast coastlines of the Atlantic.
