Here are 3 photos of a large piece of black sea glass found on Cinnamon Beach in Palm Coast, Florida.

Can someone tell me what this might be?

Thanks for all the responses faerie
by: Ed Weber

The glass appears black blue when a bright flashlight illuminates it from behind it is actually a dark green with many various size bubbles. Iโ€™ll try to get a pic of the green and post it here. Thanks for all the thoughts on it. Iโ€™ve been glass hunting for many years and this piece is by for the most unusual.faerie

What glass may be
by: Marie

I think it's a piece of a kick up. The bottom of a wine or champagne bottle. It's not a flat bottom but is raised in the middle and is usually black.

onion bottle
by: Anonymous

I found a black onion bottom at Indian Harbor Beach 3 years ago this looks like part of a bottom of one.

Black Sea glass.
by: Susan in Canada

Hello...I have several similar pieces from a lake in Ontario Canada....One of the oldest, if not the oldest man made glass is very thick and appears black...I believe you have a very tumbled part of the bottom of a very old the lake I am on, Rice Lake, first contact between First Nation Canadians with European was with the French who came searching for furs..Samuel de Champlain came in the mid 1600โ€™s to trade with Native Peoples, established a few trading posts, etc. then moved on ....much later European folks came to actually settle in the area....I believe the black glass was brought here with liquids, perhaps wine, and over the ,any years garbage and trash was simply dumped in the middle of the lakes..actually left on the ice to sink when it melted in the Spring...hopes this helps.

Granted, I am no expert. But to me this resembles the lip of an amphora. Bottles that were used to carry olive oil, etc.

Looks very old
by: David & Lin - Odyssey SG

Wow, this looks really old considering the amount of pitting and wear. It looks like it MIGHT be from a bottle but the shape and thickness doesn't quite jive from what I can tell.

Hopefully someone has seen something like this.

Excellent find and very unusual.
