A collection - orange or amber glass?

Great site! Thanks.

Would any of the glass in my photo considered orange?

A friend just dropped off a pot full of sea glass and I found these pieces.

I'm just starting to make jewelry (sea glass and worn sea shells).

Thank you for any help you can offer.

I actually have found a small piece of true orange sea glass just the other day in South Carolina, and I would have to tell you that your pieces are more of an Amber look.

The orange are definitely orange.

What you have are definitely beautiful though and would make a great addition to just about any project or collection you add it to!

Thanks for the information Pat.

You are right. In the Sun light they look more amber than orange.

Still enjoy the colour.

Wish they were orange, but I don't think so

I find many pieces (probably in the same area as you) as you have pictured here and always wish someone would call them orange...but alas, I think they are just amber.
