Origins and or age of this beach marble?


I am wondering if anyone can shed some light on to the origins and or age of this beach marble I found.

This is the first summer that my wife and I have been searching for beach glass and we have become hooked on the hobby.

We live in Michigan and most of our searches are actually on inland lakes, where, surprisingly, there is a lot of glass to be found.

We have recently made a few trips to the shorelines of the great lakes, which brings me to my question.

This past Wednesday, while walking the shore of Lake Michigan, I found this dark brown glass marble and am wondering the possible origin, use, age, and rarity of finding one in the great lakes.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all,

Frank and Dawn
