"I was walking on the beach with my family and we spotted this rare piece of red sea glass in the water.

we were very excited because finding red glass was something we always dreamed of, but never actually thought would happen. :)

Anyone know what this could be from?"

Red glass
by: Susan

My Mother(84 yrs. old) just found a red piece of glass yesterday at Oregon Inlet, NC.

Not too far from Nags Head, NC.

Very very rare in this area.

Any comments or value welcomed.

Red Beach Glass from Signal Lights
by: David & Lin @ OdysseySeaGlass

A red piece of glass that thick will most likely not be from dinnerware or ornamental glass.

It is almost positive that it comes from some type of signal light, among which would be antique train signals, stoplights, emergency lamps, ship lights, buoy lights, etc.

An example is this photo of a Chicago Railroad Signal 4 Way Train Light found at

Red beach finds
by: Anonymous

I don't know what my RED RUBIES actually come from.
I have found at least 12 this yr so far!!! Yay me!

Sizes vary from a fat gum drop up to one just shy of a golf ball size!

'My beach' is very western Washington & I can walk of it w\ cobalt blue marbles more than my red ruby finds!

The Jersey Shore

The glasses are from many items from even years ago.

Many plates were red, peach,pink, yellow and blue among some of the colors.

My Grand daughter and I found many pottery pieces.

The most unusual was the Italian China from 1900's we also found a piece of Blue willow.

I am assuming this came from a Ship Wreck.

I have found purple but mostly clear white brown and green... I even found a milk white which I believe to be from the dinnerware which was made in the 1950's... If you google seaglass you will find a encyclopedia page which tells you a lot(very interesting...)

Hope this helps you...
