20 Pcs Opaque Pastel Green Beach Sea Glass For Jewelry, Jadeite:
Alot with20 pieces of smoothly frostedOPAQUE PASTEL GREENbeach combed seaglass,found on remote beaches in the Pacific Northwest. These are mainly in pretty similar MEDIUM sizes.
This glass is typically Depression-era, and came from glassware sometimes referred to as Jadeite (or Jade-ite) ware, frequently sold under the trade name "Fire King." Unlike most sea glass we find, this glassware was heat-tempered, which made it more durable on one hand, but also more brittle, on the other. As result, it is quite rare to find smoothly rounded pieces without chips and fresh breaks. Although not often mentioned among seaglass collectors, this color is about of the same scarcity grade as cornflower blue, but condition tends to be a problem--especially on larger sized pieces.
These are ingood"Jewelry Grade," with rounded softedges and all-over frosting-- a few pieces may have some minor faults on the edges only.They measure from about5/8" (16mm) long to 13/16" (20mm) long.Presentable quality lot in a less common color.

Thank you for looking at my listings with sea glass and other beach treasures! Please take a moment to look at my other items, as well as the items in my store!

I do combine shipping if youbuy multiple lots, and I also will combine store and sale purchases if made within a week of each other. Note low shipping costs-- most lots ship via USPS first class mail to save expenses. $5.45 to ship and "handle" a single little piece of glass by Priority Mail strikes me as a bit extravagant. Priority Mail is used for bulkier and heavier items.
Note: All glass and pottery I offer for sale on was collected by me, in person and is "natural," asfoundby me on various local and regional beaches. I do not tumble, treat, oil or otherwise "improve" the glass I sell-- what you see is what you get. I have been a beach comber and seaglass collector for about 45 years-- since I was six years old.
