The Rarity of Sea Glass.

There are many beautiful charts and posters that people have designed over the years with the rarity of colors in sea glass. I have always referred to the book, Pure Sea Glass, Discovering Natures Vanishing Gems, written by Richard LaMotte. This is a great reference for any beachcomber to own!

My first Red Sea glass flat back I ever found February 28, 2018 with a bunch of great finds!!!

I had to take a picture before I snatched it up. Found this red sea glass walking the low tide line.

Below is one of the closest pieces I've found to Orange sea glass this is red with an orange swirl. Found December 26th, 2018

This sea glass necklace made with Akoya pearls and 14k white gold, custom made for a custom shows most of all the sea glass colors!
