Where was this photo taken?

Unusual find from Guadeloupe French West Indies

I found the glass on April 2nd along with probably 2 or 3 lbs of mostly green, white and some amber.

Took this photo with my ipad on April 3rd when I got back to our apartment.

I spend the winters in the French West Indies and have started glass hunting on one particular beach.

My husband and I would spend two hours going up and down a long beach usually collecting one large handful of glass.

Recently we stopped off at a new area and filled a bottle in 20 minutes so that is our new spot...much less work.

I would like to identify this unusual piece and thought maybe it could be part of a plate.

What tips do you have for taking good photos of sea glass?

My suggestions for taking a photo is do it in a very bright space and maybe have something interesting in the background.

Old Television Glass?
by: David and Lin - OdysseySeaGlass

I remember several photos of this type of sea glass, including one that I myself found.

In a comment someone mentioned it being old television tube glass. It was layered and quite possibly explains this otherwise very strange layering of glass.

I did a search on Google but couldn't find any cross-sections of TV glass. Perhaps someone can positively identify this.
