How much is this worth?
It is pretty well rounded and has a thinner part on one edge.
It's about a half of a centimetre thick on the thicker part and only 3mm on the thin part.
It is so frosted that the only light that comes through is on the thin part when I use a flashlight.
I thought it was black at first but when I used a flashlight on the thin part it was actually a really dark green.
How much do you think this is worth? (sorry, I couldn't include a picture)
You likely have found what is known as "black glass," which is usually a very dark green. However, without a photo, it is difficult to say much more about it.
As far as what it's worth, it is only worth the going price that people are willing to pay.
A lot depends on the quality or grade of the piece (see the links below). If it is perfect size and jewelry quality, it is possibly worth $20.00 or more.
Lin suggests searching eBay for "black sea glass" and see what is being sold.
Either way, you have
found a collector's piece, since many folks do not ever find a piece of "black glass."

"From a collector of sea glass these cards were great. Just like a quick reference guide if you find a specific color with it's history. They are laminated so if they get wet it won't hurt them! Great find!" ~ J. Ericson
