The Many Hues of Green Sea Glass...
Green is nature’s neutral. Since the dawn of time green has symbolized growth, freshness, and harmony. Green is a universal color for safety and security.
There are more shades, tints, and hues of green than any other sea glass color. From the duskiest of dark olive to the vivid flash of lime, it can sometimes seem to the avid sea glass collector that no two pieces of green sea glass are exactly the same color!
Green glass, in one shade or another, has been made for almost 3,000 years. Most of the time in days gone by, this glow of green occurred “naturally” due to the mineral impurities that were present in the glassmaker’s sand. And green glass can take on a different hue when minerals are added at different points in the glass-making process.
The green sea glass collected for your Real Sea Glass jewelry may once have been an 1800s hand-blown flask, a 20th-century wine bottle, or a retro lemon-lime soda bottle. Each green sea glass jewelry piece signifies years of innovation and creation.
