Flashback to Redang Marine Park Centre where there was a fair amount of sea glass on the beach. I desperately wanted to bring some back, but decided not to in light of the hefty fine that could be imposed for removing something from the beach. Sea glass begins life as shards of broken bottles, tableware or even from shipwrecks which are then rolled and tumbled in the ocean. Sea glass can take 30-40 years to acquire the weathered and frosted appearance. The most common colours of sea glass are kelly green and brown (usually from bottles of beer, juice or soft drinks) and clear (usually from clear plates, glasses, windows and windshields). Colours that are less common include jade and amber (usually from whiskey, medicines, spirits, bleach bottles), lime green (from 1960s soda bottles) and golden amber (from spirit bottles). Extremely rare colours include gray and pink (Great Depression era plates) and yellow (often from 1930s Vaseline containers). I never knew how fascinating sea glass could be! I think I want to start a new collection.
