Sea Glass Color Chart

What really is the color of your seaglass?



Below you will find over 80 named colors to help you accurately describe your sea glass and identify rare or valuable sea glass...very important when buying or selling!

Here is a complete sea and beach glass color chart to help you identify the color of your sea glass.

This sea glass color chart has the standardized names that David put together based on the colors that your computer screen shows.

  • We have added some commonly-used names in parenthesis.

  • We have found this much more helpful than using a less extensive or non-standardized color chart. Why?


Very often, the unusual colors you find cannot be categorized using a simple color chart.

Also, using your favorite names when describing the color of your sea glass can cause quite a bit of confusion or can even be misleading.


~   Use of this sea glass color chart and referring to it when communicating with another person will help avoid misunderstandings.  ~

This full color spectrum sea glass color chart shows many of the 130 colors that show on a computer screen (some colors were deemed not applicable to sea glass).

  • It helps you to accurately describe the glass color that you have. This is very important when collecting sea glass and selling sea glass.


Try this out:

  • Take a shard of sea glass.

  • Hold it up with a piece of white paper behind it.

  • Compare it to the color on the screen.

  • Now hold the sea glass up to a muted natural light source, again comparing it to the screen colors.

It will be quick and easy to eliminate the colors it is NOT and settle on the standard name for the exact color you have!



NOTE: There are so many nuances to color that it is naturally impossible to match many colors to this chart exactly.

~   Use combinations such as "lime spring green" for a color that falls between two other colors on the chart and make use of "pale," "bright," "smoky," to modify colors as needed.   ~

I have shared your website with my other sea glass fanatic friends over the last couple of years and they love it as much as I do.

Thanks!!

" Hi Lin and David,

I have come to sea glass via my shell collecting and am finding it very addictive too. Last year I found a glass bottle stopper which was a thrill.

Very small and few people but a nice supply of glass just as you stated.

I really enjoy the newsletter and can easily spend an evening getting lost in the stories and comments."

Regards,

"


Anne Cram

" Just wanted to thank you for all of your helpful information.

The sea glass community is filled with people who guard their "secret beaches" so it is refreshing to see that there are people who are willing to share.

It's so useful for those of us that don't live near a beach and travel to find our glass.

The information posted here lets us spend more time enjoying our adventure rather than wasting time looking for a great spot

Thanks again,

"
