Sea Glass Marbles

Hello Sea Glassers! 

Have you ever found a sea glass marble on the beach and wondered, how in the heck does a marble wind up in the ocean? Well we have an answer for you. 

A long long time ago ships would use boxes of marbles as ballast to weigh them down in rough seas. When the boxes were no longer needed they would be tossed overboard. Marble were cheap to come by and easy to replace.  

So those marbles you are finding were once on a ship traveling to who knows where. 

We love this about our sea glass marbles and hope you do too! 

Happy Sea Glassing!
