WINNER of the Novemver 2014 Sea Glass Photo Contest

White Cristallo sea glass.

Notes from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Cristallo is a glass which is totally clear (like rock crystal), without the slight yellow or greenish color originating from iron oxide impurities.

This effect is achieved through small additions of manganese oxide.

Often Cristallo has a low lime content which makes it prone to glass corrosion (otherwise known as glass disease).

Wow, what an amazing piece of Sea Glass.

I bet when you found that piece you leapt for sheer joy! I know I would have.

What sort of bottle would this have come from?

How old do you think it is?

Any other information that you know of?

Great seaglass photo, great seaglass find.
I'm so jealous :-)
