What color would you consider this sea glass?

What glass object did it originate from?

Many seemingly sharp edges (but it would be very difficult to cut yourself handling it)

Blend of colors from yellowish to reddish

This looks like a piece of citrine to me - a semi-precious gemstone in the quartz family.

Wow that's great. Thanks so much for your help, Nick!


Hi JP, my name is Nick aka Seaglassdog from Tinton Falls, N.J and what you might have is a piece of Vintage Amberina seaglass!

These pieces usually transition from Red or Orange to Yellow or all 3 colors together!

If you have a Blacklight try putting the seaglass under it and see if it glows a Neon Orange Yellow due to the addition of Magnesium when they made the glass!!

Good luck.......Nick
