Sea glass is formed in the ocean takes anywhere from50 to 100 yearsto create. Constant tumbling and soaking in the salt water create a smooth, frosted surface over the glass, as well as rounded edges. Sea glass comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors, but some colors are rarer than others
It has a weathered, natural look and feel. Because it's been broken down by time, tumbling, and salt water the chemical composition of the glass has actually changed through a natural dehydration process, a critical reason why it looks different than manufactured, tumbled glass.
Why is sea glass so hard to find?
The reason is pretty straightforward:glass is no longer being used as commonly as it was a few decades ago. Back in the 1960s and 70s, many things, including bottles, jars and pots were made of glass.
