Sea Glass Rarity Chart - Rare Sea Glass

What sea glass or beach glass colors are the rarest? Here you'll find an illustrated list of the rarity of the various colors: (For a close look at sea glass color identification, go to the Sea Glass Color Chart)



Rarity Of Colors

I'm going to list the rarity of colors based upon our own collection (which is a lot of sea glass collected over the years).

Keep in mind what I said about the color rarity being different depending on the geographical area. (For a discussion on origins of the colors in sea glass, go to How is sea glass made?)

Sea Glass - Rarity Chart Below Shows Relative Rarity of Colors 

Most of our sea glass has been collected on the beaches of
the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Washington  
  • Northern California
  • The Chesapeake Bay in Maryland
  • Southeastern Lake Erie
  • Northern Peru, South America.
Friends and family have helped contribute a few nice pieces to our collection.

Here goes!

I have also found colors that don't fit an exact color. For example, David found one that the best way to describe it is a smoky dark gray color.

Once again, which color is more rare does depend on the beach or even the state or country you're in. One area will have some of the rarer colors as more common or vice versa.

For example on our local beach we find a lot of cobalt blue, so it is not very rare. On other beaches it may be among the rarest of colors.

However, this sea glass rarity chart in general is pretty accurate. Feel free to make comments on our forums pages or below in the Facebook comments.

Note also that the above colors don't represent the wide array of hues or tints that are found in sea glass. So find the closest on this color rarity chart and you'll get an idea of about how rare it is.
