Unusual Sea Glass with gold/orange "Inner Glow"

by Tania
(Victoria, Australia)

I found this little nugget on Lorne Beach in Victoria, Australia.

Initially I thought it was just a chunk of brown and grabbed it because of its unusual shape.

Upon inspecting it later I noticed, in the light, it gave off beautiful colors of gold, orange and even a lime green on certain angles.

I am curious why it does this, has anyone else seen anything like it? Someone suggested it might have air bubbles in it near the surface.

I also found that a few other pieces, that I picked up from the same area, also had this effect to a smaller degree (I have included one in the attached photos).

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

That's a lovely find. Beach glass is special isn't it. A sculpture made by nature out of our waste.

Picked up similar glass piece on lake shore while on vacation in Gaspesie region although not surf-tumbled - might be bonfire glass or campfire sea glass
