These are imperfect pieces of rare red and amberina sea glass, along with a piece of red and white marble. The largest, and the star of this collection , the amberina (red-orange) piece looks like it might be bonfire glass...slightly melted. Although these beach gems are imperfect, with nicks, and shiny edges, they are still extremely rare. Perfect for a beachcombing collection of rare sea glass colors. Personally handpicked by our family from the shores of Monterey Bay's Marine Sanctuary.

Sizes range from approximately 3/8" to 7/8" long. The marble piece is about 5/8" in diameter

♥History:

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.”
