October 2016 - Huge Chunk of White Sea Glass?
Padaro Beach, California - What is/was this?
We've been collecting sea glass for years, but we've never seen anything like this huge, well seasoned chunk! It's quite frosted and smooth.
We found it in October 2016, on Padaro Beach (just south of Santa Barbara CA
) on a very low tide afternoon.
It is VERY heavy! It seems to be maybe industrial glass of some sort, perhaps a vintage insulator?
There are oil rigs way offshore in this area, so thinking it might have come from the rigs - or not......
It's about 2 inches wide, 2 inches long, about 3/4 inch deep at the low part, and 1" deep at the highest point.
The top is smoothly concave; the bottom quite flat. It is somewhat opaque, not clear, when held up to the light.
We keep thinking it should be easy to identify, but no one we ask can pinpoint it...... can anyone tell me?
