Why can reports on East Coast Sea Glass vary considerably between two different people?

  • Some are better at finding sea glass. For example, my wife, Lin, finds at least twice as much as me and more colors on any given day.
  • Sea Glass Reports from the British Isles and Europe can vary from one tide to the next and also from low tide to high tide.
  • Some collectors may not know the difference between Craft and Jewelry Grade Sea Glass.

For the above reasons, we try to verify these Sea Glass Reports from the British Isles and Europe with actual photos whenever possible.

So take your camera to the beach! and be sure to report your Sea Glass from the British Isles and Europe!
