This ruby red sea glass gem was found along a North Sea coastline in England. It measures 3/4" long, has some lightly visible cream colored streaks, and originates from vintage slag glass.
Slag glass is a collectors' name for opaque pressed glass with colored streaks, usually white or cream. The term is borrowed from the steel industry where the word describes the unusable residue left after smelting. Slag glass was originally created in England in the 1890's by adding slag substance during the glass-making process.
We have secured the sea glass jewel using a sturdy, sterling silver cinch band, which allows light to travel through the piece and nearly the entire sea glass piece to be visible. The pendant hangs on a sterling silver chain in your choice of length.
Your necklace will arrive in a cotton-lined gift box with a card that tells the short story of sea glass and the name of the ocean from which your piece was beachcombed.
