Sea glass, beach glass, or beach rocks and pebbles?

Hi all!

I'm new to seaglassing, and I want to buy some tools to help me locate and enjoy my finds.

I'm wondering if you have any specific recommendations for or against any of the following items:

Jeweler's Loupe
LED flashlight

Is there anything else that will help me in
1. Determining if what I have is glass or a rock/stone/mineral,
2. Determining if I have vaseline glass,
3. Determining if my black chunk is glass,
4. Deciding if I need any of these items, or something else, etc.

Thank you so much for your expertise and recommendations!
