Sea Glass - Ruby Red

Sea Glass Hunting

Ruby Red Sea Glass - 1" x 1"

I think I’ve found favor with the Sea Glass God. Traversing over stones and rocks can be a challenge with a blown out ACL but I do it hoping to find that PRIZE.

For us hounds that do everything but sniff out Sea Glass, the Ruby Red Sea Glass is one of the ultimate finds. Up to this point I’ve found Red Sea Glass in pebble size so you can imagine my unbelief and amazement when I found a 1″ x 1″ piece.

This beauty was tucked in between rocks and was black in appearance…it took 3 looks at it squating lower each time til finally deciding to pick it up to take a look.

I actually thought it was Black Glass: holding it to the sun fully expecting to see an amber or olive colour…the gasp said it all. I Scored :)

This season is starting out with great potential. To all my Sea Glass friends, good luck and may the Sea Glass God smile on you too.

Fair Winds and Calm Seas,
