|Love this Lime Green Glass!|
Beach glass is created when glass items have been disposed of in the oceans by man or by sunken ships and vessels. Once it is in the ocean they are smoothed by the actions of the waves, sand and stone to create these lovely little pieces of sea glass gems. Sea glass washes up on nearly every beach on earth. The color of sea glass is determined by its original source. Most sea glass comes from bottles and jars.
The most common colors of sea glass are Kelly or lime green; brown, blue and purple (clear). These colors come from bottles used by companies that sell beer, juices, and soft drinks.
