Nome, Alaska Beach Glass
November, 26, 2017 - Nome, Alaska, USA
Nome, Alaska has beach glass from the early 1900's after the Gold Rush started.
Up to 4+ miles South and about 2 miles North of Nome and in front of Nome has beach glass.
Most abundance colors are Brown, Green, Light Blue, Blue, Red, rare Pink and Red, along with China plate White, with Clear, and Light Pale Blue.
I have family members that Hunt Beach Glass all summer, one person I know has been collecting for years, Marbles of all types, and they currently have 6 five gallon buckets full. My Daughters go during the summer and have gallons and gallons bags full of glass.
Currently we have only a small amount 2 White China pieces, 13 Dark Green, 80 Light Blue/Green, 103 Green, 143 Light White/Clear, 164 Brown/Dark Brown.
This was from only 2 weeks hunting the beach in Nome.
There is no private beach from Low to High tide around Nome.
