Jadite - December 2011 Sea Glass Photo Contest

~ submitted by: Janet Marie Watley -  New York, New York

This a partial collection of jadite that I collected on the sands of Lake Erie in Cleveland Ohio.

It was here that I first discovered beachglass and some wonderful beachcombers, who took me to Treasure Island literally :)

This town is thriving with beachglass artists and collectors. I never had so much fun in this exciting hobby and this amazing lake.

This photo was taken with a standard Olympus camera on a partial sunny day in Corvallis Oregon, another exciting town of artists that I had a chance to meet.

Suggestions for other photographers on the online digital photo contest?
When I took this photo, I was inspired by events in my life :-)

Jadite vs. Jadeite

To clear up some confusion:

Jadeite is a mineral with a green color (not true jade).

Jadite is a pale green non-transparent glass used in various types of glassware over the years.

A definitive book on jadite glass with great photos is Jadite: An Identification and Price Guide:

Beautiful pieces!
Interesting to find out that the opaque light green seaglass pieces are called Jadeites!
