Can anyone tell me if any of these pieces are sea glass. They came from Outer Banks, N.C.

Hi, the OBX is my usual hunting grounds. I, too, vote for rocks. Most OBX glass is not as rounded as those stones. Also, I see line in them, and glass is usually consistently a solid color. Sorry you didn't have better luck. A good day hunting at the OBX may yield 5-7 pieces for me.

True sea glass?

The lumpy pieces look like agates, I usually find lots when I look for sea glass in WA state

Rocks or sea glass

Hi Delores,

The larger pieces are rocks. The two small pieces, brown and white, in the upper left could be sea glass. However, it is not possible to tell in this photo. Perhaps a photo of just those two in closer detail would help.

Happy hunting and you will find some treasures!
