Frequently asked questions about GlassBeachSeaGlass
We really don't sell custom lots of sea glass. Our sea glass is no longer legal to collect so we mix our beads and lots with both common and rare colored pieces.
Most of our rarest colors are TINY pieces. The glass we found at the 1920s whorehouse site has been tumbled by the mermaids for nearly 100 years. Some glass is more fragile, hence smaller. We try to get a close up photo to show detail of the glass, but this can sometimes make the glass look larger than it is. Most beads pieces have an average size listed in description. We can refer you to another shop in California that sells larger pieces from a different area.
Our reputation. Ask around and we can provide references too. There are several clubs and sellers that prove to be consistent with honest collectors. Also, if you make a purchase and just aren't convinced, we will take you on a virtual walk to our old beach. There are some sea glass associations that are trying to get members to join who are only genuine sea glass collectors, but we've found these associations to be populated with those sellers who seed. We are very much against seeding or farming, as modern day glass does not belong in our oceans AT ALL. Been there, done that, please don't put anything in our precious rivers and oceans.
