Rating Sea Glass Quality

A sampling of some of the most treasured, historic sea glass colors.

Sea glass quality can vary greatly from piece to piece. Environmental conditions, water pH,  amount of time in the water and even tide movement can effect the surface and texture of sea glass. The individual quality of a piece is rated on several factors:

  • Overall smoothness
  • Frostiness of surface
  • Color rarity
  • Shape & Size
  • History and Age

We get phone calls every day from folks who are looking for sea glass for jewelry, mosaics, home decor and other art. Some collectors are looking for a single, rare piece that may not be in their collection. That's why size, shape, condition and color are all important factors when deciding what is needed.
