A large and smoothly frosted piece of OPAQUE PASTEL MINT GREEN beach picked sea glass, hand gathered on remote beaches in the Pacific Northwest.

This is a somewhat unusual (and fairly uncommon) kind of glass many beach combers aren't necessarily familiar with, so here's a short history: It is typically Depression-era to around the 1950s, and comes from glassware sometimes referred to as "Jadeite" (or Jade-ite) ware, sold under the trade name "Fire King." Unlike most glass we find on the beach, this glassware was heat-tempered, which made it more durable on one hand, but also more brittle, on the other. As result, it is quite unusual to find smoothly rounded pieces without chips, sharp angles and fresh breaks. Although not often mentioned among glass collectors, this color is about of the same scarcity grade as cornflower blue, but condition tends to be a problem-- ESPECIALLY on larger pieces like this one.

This piece has very smooth "soft" frosting and rounded edges, and is a rounded oblong shape for a pendant. A very smooth surface, it is in MUCH better condition than most pieces I find.

SIZE is: Just over 1 1\/16" (26mm) long by 9\/16" (14mm) across the widest part, and a little over 5\/16" (6mm) thick, at thickest. Photos show a couple of angles and one photo shows the piece with a US dime, for scale reference.

CONDITION is: BETTER "Jewelry A\/B Grade" (Rounded shapes, all-over frosting, may have tiny irregular spots or minute inclusions, NO fresh chips or shiny spots, overall smooth appearance). This is a very nice piece.

Reference number: E-09-0057



Authentic sea glass (or beach glass) is typically the result of glass-- including that from trash and actual garbage dumps-- being thrown into the ocean, getting broken, and then gradually being polished by the action of currents and waves, with sand, rocks and pebbles acting as a "polishing abrasive." It takes many years for a sharp piece of glass to turn into the soft-curved beach gems seaglass enthusiasts prize so highly. It is not unusual for me to pick up glass I can determine as having come from containers more than 100 years old.

To learn more about me, and the genuine beach combed sea glass I offer here on Etsy, please take a moment to read my "Profile" page.

Every lot of sea glass you purchase from me will include a small "story sheet," briefly describing what "natural sea glass" IS, as well as the geographical origins of the piece(s) you received. I deliberately OMIT my personal information from this sheet, so jewelers and artisans can copy and use it in their OWN sales presentation, when they come to sell their final creations-- or you can add your own logo, if you'd like. As you no doubt know, "romancing the art" does tend to make it more interesting to potential buyers.
