Sea Glass or What in Greece?

Hi,any ideas about these?

Don't know what they are or how they were created,we found a few on a sandy beach in Greece!

They can be found on the surface/underneath the sand,specially near sea trees.

Most (practically all) of them are cylinder shaped,only the height differs!

crinoid stem plates
by: David & Lin

Crinoids, mostly found as fossils, have a stem that is made of plates. These come apart and are scattered and may have an appearance like the pieces shown. That's why the comment on crinoids. However, I could not find any exact match photos of the plates. Here are lots of photos of crinoids though if you have the time to look through them (I got to page 6, which has possible similar plates). >>>

It's a subject worthy of investigation. Of course, they might be some kind of glass decorations, too.

Plastic packing pellets?
by: David

We found similar little thingies on the Pacific beaches of Washington and Oregon and guess that they are plastic pellets used for packing material of some type.
