Most purple sea glass is actually “sun” purple – in the old days manganese was added to glass as a clarifying agent, and manganese turns purple when exposed to UV rays – like those in sunlight.
This uniquely shaped lavender pendant is an excellent specimen of this “purpling” process.
Sea Glass, or Beach Glass, are beautiful pieces of found-again treasures that wash upon the shore after years of churning within bodies of water. Over a duration of 30-50 years, or even more, powerful tides break the glass into smaller pieces and erode away sharp edges, producing a beautifully smooth and alluring glass gem.
