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.   ~
