Do you call it lake glass then?
----------------- Notes: Thanks for adding this, Sheila!
Naturally-tumbled glass found on fresh water shores is generally called beach glass. However, sea glass can be beach glass, so it is not that specific.
"Lake glass" sounds even more specific (as compared perhaps to beach glass found on large rivers), and I think the term is easily understood, so I think it should be used so specify "beach glass found on lake shores."
