Beach Glass: A Rare Orange Treasure

Orange Beach Glass: one in ten thousand pieces found.....considered the rarest of the rare......and holds such a great mystery!!

Like collecting shells, fossils, or stones, combing shorelines for sea glass is a hobby many beach-goers and beachcombers enjoy. Hobbyists often fill decorative jars with their collections and take great pleasure in tracing a shard's provenance while artisans craft beautiful pieces of jewelry, stained glass and other decorative pieces from sea glass. Some collectors even use their collections in creating beautiful works of art by putting them in cement or other adhesive to create a mosaic.

The most common colors of sea glass are kelly green, brown, and white. These colors come from bottles used by companies that sell beer, juices, and soft drinks. The clear or white glass comes from clear plates and glasses, windshields, windows, and assorted other sources.

Extremely rare colors include gray, pink, teal , black (older, very dark olive green glass), yellow, turquoise, red, and orange.  Orange is the least common type of sea glass, found once in about 10,000 pieces. These colors are found once for every 1,000 to 10,000 pieces collected.
If you happen to find orange glass on a beach glass collecting adventure, then keep it!
