What would this turquoise nugget have once been a piece of?

by Jacq le Breton
(Gillingham, Kent, UK)

I was so lucky to find this gorgeous chunk of deep turquoise sea glass. Found on Minster beach, Isle of Sheppey during the summer. I would like to know what it came from if any one can shed any light on it please. Also an age would be great.

Approximate measurements:
27mm height
24mm width
17mm thickness

Thank you

Very lovely find.

Given the shaping of the indentation this can pretty much be confirmed as the bottom corner of a bottle of some sort of premier liquid. Due to its colour it's likely to be scent. I had thought of bottle mixer marble (the marbles that some bottles have inside them to stir up & mix liquids) but I think a plainer colour would have been used for this.

Sea glass question

It looks like the bottom corner of a cosmetic or perfume bottle. But can't be sure.
