New Collector from Australia with Sea Glass Reports

by Anne
(Sydney, Australia)

I am fairly new to sea glass collecting which has developed as a sideline to shell collecting.


Yesterday I went to Delwood beach near Manly and in an hour or so collected probably a hundred pieces and left many more behind.

Mostly greens, frosted clear and plenty of shades of amber. (Amber sounds better than "beer bottle brown".)

I also found a few pale mauve, one yellow and one royal blue. Very exciting.

I have also collected pieces on the islands of Guadalcanal and Bellona in the Solomon Islands.

These are the common colours - green, amber and clear.

Last year my granddaughter found a light blue piece of glass while we were looking for shells on the waterfront in Port Vila, Vanuatu.
