Tasmania Australia Sea Glass
Some of my sea glass collection

If you take a stroll along the beaches of Tasmanias Eastern shore eg Sorell, Lauderdale, Bellerive and, if you keep a close eye out along the shoreline, you are bound to pick up a few beach glass finds.
I have been fortunate enough over the past 20 years to accumulate a collection for myself - mainly browns, greens and clear glass, with the occasional mauve, blue and black.
Some of my glass dates back over a century, back to a time when the ships and barges used to deliver goods and services to the early white settlers.
Due to rough seas, high tides and cyclonic weather, much of the broken glass, crockery etc that was dumped overboard has gradually found its way to our shores.
