Sea Glass


Last time I’ve been in Sardinia instead to take a shell from the beach I collected this lovely sea glasses.

Sea glass is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of water. These weathering processes prouce natural frosted glass.

Sea glass takes 20 to 40 years, and sometimes as much as 100 years, to acquire its characteristic texture and shape.

Genuine sea glass can be collected as a hobby and is used for decoration, most commonly in jewelry.


This beaches treasure apparently are getting very rare like precious jewels that has been even opened a Museum in California, watch the Video:

There’s also an huge beach made of glass pebbles instead of sand called Glass Beach at Fort Bragg in California.

This is an example of how nature change & survive despite all causes created from human being. The glass beach is a beach of over 15 acres, there is an immense expanse of small pebbles completely polished in glass.

It was also revealed by a recent survey conducted by the Friends of Glass community that glass is an ‘eco-friendly’ material that is 100% recyclable and completely composed of natural substances such as sand, limestone or recycled glass.

Since the glass is inert, even if a container made of this material ends up in the sea, no dangerous substance would be released, nor would there be a transformation of the glass into micro-particles that could contaminate the food chain or pollute the seas. According to a recent survey conducted by the Friends of Glass community, three out of four Europeans consider glass to be the most ‘friendly’ choice of packaging by the sea.
