Iconic and Legendary...
Green with a touch of blue, seafoam balances youthful exuberance with enlightenment and awareness. Said to promote emotional healing and the ability to help the wearer balance work and play, it’s no wonder seafoam is regarded as the best color partner for rest and relaxation.
Seafoam was among the first glass colors ever produced thousands of years ago, likely in Rome. This beachy color had its heyday throughout the world in the middle 20th century in the form of the ubiquitous Coca-Cola bottle.
Uranium glass may also date back to ancient Roman times. What looks like ordinary, innocent yellow-green glass under normal light turns a vibrant, glowing bright lime when exposed to black light. But fear not, there is so little uranium in UV glass that you get more radiation from a few minutes in the sun than you could ever get from UV sea glass!
Your seafoam sea glass jewelry was most likely once a vintage Coca-Cola bottle, while your UV sea glass jewelry may be 1800s tableware or a Depression-era carnival prize!
