Perfect Purple - June 2016 Sea Glass Photo Contest

by Selkie's Sea Glass
(Victoria, B.C,)

Perfect Purple

Perfect Purple

WINNER June 2016

This extraordinary sea glass nugget is the darkest of purples, a perfectly frosted jelly bean, no chips!

I think it is Vitrine, which was made near Lake Erie.  Vitrine was used as insulator glass about 75 years ago!   I have found many small insulator pieces, but never anything of this calibre.  

Found on a beach in Victoria, B.C., this glass is so dark no light passes through it.

The purple can be seen on close inspection in the bright sunlight.

Challenging to photograph, I snapped this shot in my studio, and with my Apple iPad.
