Two pounds of genuine beach gems! A fun collection of rough and frosty sea glass. These are pieces of sea glass that didn't quite make the grade for our usual collections; mostly smooth with imperfections. Sizes range from approximately 1/4" to over 2 inches long. Naturally surf-tumbled and hand-picked from the shores of Monterey Bay's Marine Sanctuary in California.
This collection will be sent via Priority Mail Small Flat Rate box. If you order other items, I will try to fit them into the box as well and refund shipping for those collections.

Monterey Peninsula beaches have an interesting and colorful history, from pirate pillages in the 1800’s (one beach was named “the Beach of Insurgents”) to the fishing, whaling, and canning industry in the 1900’s, to marine biological research in the mid-1900’s. It was Monterey where Spanish ships brought Franciscan Friar Junipero Serra to the area to establish one of the first Californian pueblos in June, 1770, and later, Monterey was the original location of the state capital. Nobel Prize winner, John Steinbeck, used the location and lives of those he knew in Monterey, to write Cannery Row, Tortilla Flat, and Sweet Thursday. He referred to Monterey Peninsula as “the circle of enchantment.”
