Prehistoric sea glass found at Seaham?
Prehistoric Sea Glass...
OK so maybe that's an exaggeration, but it's a fascinating story.
From time to time, i can be walking along the tide line at Seaham beach, and see the moment that a piece of sea glass arrives, my best being a large red that was dropped at my feet back in 2013.
However, I am particularly fascinated by sea glass that containes a striped or patterned layer that resembles a picture, a landscape or a pattern. The tropical island is a great example (first image)
One that seems to appear a few times a year, due to the erosion of the coloured layer on the face of the glass, is the exclamatin mark as shown in the second image.
However, very few pieces resemble a living creature, and even less contain a colour layer that looks like an animal. So when this latest piece popped up over Christmas, looking exactly like a purple T-Rex, I was quite stunned. (last image)
I can't wait to see what will appear next.
