What is Sea Glass?

What Is Sea Glass?

I look for Sea Glass when I am at OBX but what is it.......

Worn by waves, recycled by the sea, sea glass is a product of both nature and man. Bottles, jar's and glass carelessly discarded are tumbled by the ocean to form these colorful gems of the shore. These lovely collectible beach gems are vanishing due to plastics and recycling.©
 "Sea Glass is reverse gem"©. Traditional gems (diamonds, rubies, emeralds) are made by nature and refined by man. Sea glass is originally made by man (bottles and jars) but refined by nature to become smooth frosty beach found gems.
Sea glass begins as bottles & glass that get tossed on the shore, broken, and then tumbled smooth by the waves and currents. Nature acts like a big rock tumbler recycling our pollution!
