Wandering the beach, you may come across nuggets that look like smooth black stones, but which are actually black sea glass. Black glass has a long history and each piece has a unique story, depending where it is found.

We gather our black seaglass from the beaches of Prince Edward Island Canada and we think that most of our black glass is from  liquor and ale/beer bottles that were mass produced in the late 19th century around the world. The black seaglass you get around here is mostly a  dark forest green which you can see by holding the black seaglass up to the light.  These bottles were used for liquor, bitters, and medicinals in the mid 19th century and sometimes we get big black square chunks of seaglass which you can clearly tell are bottles. We do occasionally find some black glass that looks a dark red when you hold it up to the light.
