Can someone identify what this might be? I found it at Fort Bragg, CA.

It is an inch thick and an inch and a half in diameter.

I've found pieces of deep purple (looks black until light is shined through) in Fort Bragg, CA. Took them to the Sea Glass Museum just south of town to have them identified. I was told they are pieces of insulators from light bulbs. Not all of the pieces I found had markings or ridges either, so maybe that's it?

Was curious if this would be considered a rare color for sea glass. Thanks!

Nice find! Unfortunately, there is no way to positively identify a piece of glass unless it has distinctive markings on it, like lettering or other unique features.

Even then it many times is not possible.

On the other hand, you have found a very unusual collector's piece.
