Angels of Peace

Angels of Peace

Rare Sea-foam Beach Glass Angels

Beach Glass are found on beaches along oceans, bays, rivers or large lakes that has been tumbled and smoothed by the waves, water and sand, creating smooth, frosted shards of glass.
The color of beach glass is determined by its original source. 
Most beach glass comes from bottles, but it can also come from jars, plates, windows, windshields, collect beach ceramics or pottery.

The most common colors of glass are kelly green, brown, and clear. These colors come from bottles used by companies that sell beer, juices, and soft drinks. 

Seafoam Green - While the most common source for this lovely shade of light green glass was most likely an old Coco Cola bottle made in various parts of the world. The shades vary from a light sea foam green to yellow green to light aqua's. Transport was difficult so many of these bottles were manufactured locally, hence the color variations in old coke bottles.
A lot of older white glass however, had a greenish tint and depending on thickness and whether bubbles are present, could be an old piece of rarer glass. New glass of this shade is still used for wine bottles.


White - Can come from just about anywhere from a new soda bottle to an old pane of glass. You can usually determine how old your white glass is by the thickness and any markings or bubbles. Many angular shapes of sea glass are white pieces (maybe because it was once window glass from a storm wrecked cottage or auto glass from off shore dumping and reef formation.)
