Super excited about this find! I never search for glass at Yorktown Beach because there really isn’t a lot of tumble and they bring in sand but today I decided to just take a look while I watched the sun rise.


Initially, I thought this was a rock but as the sun rose I realized it was a really thick green piece of a bottle. There are no marking but it is evident it is very old and considering

I found it right in front of Cornwallis’ Cave I can only imagine what is was and where it came from. Any thoughts??

Yorktown has a lot of history and dates back 400 years, its beach holds and hides many nice pieces the dark green is 1700`s in many cases, also remember the wind blown sand etches glass just as the tumble of the waves do, plus some days its 2 foot shore break, we dont get there as often as we would like but its on the list to stop when every were are on that side of the Bay
