I found this piece a few years ago on the Holy Loch

I found this piece a few years ago on the Holy Loch when I knew nothing of sea glass (and still know little having discovered it only a few days ago).

It was only the other day after I found some other nice pieces that I noticed the two tone effect.

Despite how it appears in some of the photographs, it is not immediately obvious when you are handling it until you hold it horizontally to the light that you see the division.

Any thoughts on what this might be or thoughts in general are much appreciated.

It weighs 8.66g.

Neat piece!

It could be a piece of flash glass, where a clear outer coating seals in the colored glass.

My guess would be from a household or decorative piece.

I've seen it used for things like mugs.

Melissa - Photos of the red/white?

Melissa,

We think these are some of the most beautiful combinations and colors in sea glass.

Do you have or can you take some photos that we can add to this page?

Thanks!

I've been wondering about this glass myself
by: Melissa

I've found several pieces similar to these in Seacoast, New Hampshire!

But no ideas on where they could come from unfortunately.

Wow, Chris! I found one that is smaller than that but very similar.

It looks like it was white with red sandwiched though, since on the side opposite the white, there is the remains of a tiny white spot.

Here is the pic and page that it appears on:

We would also like to know if anyone has seen these or can identify them.

Oh, by the way, from a somewhat-ignorant Peruvian/American: Does loch refer to any body of water or just fresh-water lakes?

Thanks for the great photos. Be sure and send in more photos as you find more beach glass.

Happy hunting,

David and Lin @ OdysseySeaGlass.com
