Identify Your Sea Glass

Post your sea glass shard or other beach finds here for identification.

Identification is very difficult or impossible without a photo.

We've found that questions about identifying sea glass and other beachcombing treasures that don't have a photo rarely get answers.

For that reason:

  • You must submit a photo of your sea glass shard or beach find for your question to be accepted.


To upload a photo, it should be less than 1000 pixels wide.

Click here for easy instructions on resizing your photo
.

Also helpful is where the sea glass was found and a detailed written description of the piece; for example, size, color, letters, or figures.
