If you travel far from our local shores, there is a place where rainbow coloured gems wash ashore and sparkle in the sand
During the Victorian Era, dating from the mid 1800s, the coastal town of Seaham in the north east of England became famed for its glass making history. Excess glass during the glass making process was cut off and collected near the kiln. Colours would become mixed and layered during the day and then tossed out into the Northern sea at the end of the day. Over the years multi-colour gems started washing ashore. Multi colour sea glass is considered extremely rare in the sea glass collecting world.
