Beach Glass is magic. Ordinarily gems are created by nature and refined by humans. Beach glass is human-made, then polished to perfection by nature.
Weathered and smoothed around the edges by the salty sea, it feels so good to hold a lovely gem in your hand. It looks more exquisite than the most precious stones, more beautiful than the prettiest sea shell.
Make your own beach treasure jar to take home from your trip! The best places to hunt for beach glass on San Juan Island are False Bay at low tide and Dead Man Bay.
