Moss Green Sea Glass Silver Hoop Necklace

Moss Green Sea Glass Silver Hoop Necklace


Sea Glass:
Connecting you to the land and history from where it came, the sea glass featured in this necklace was discovered on the beach in Beaumaris. Each earring features a shard of mossy green sea glass. Most moss/olive green sea glass comes from wine bottles. The main reason for the green color is that the natural ingredients used in making glass - sand, soda ash, and lime - generally contained iron impurities in the sand. Iron added to the glass-making process, produces a green color. So, depending on the amount of iron naturally found in the sand being used, the depth of green in the bottle glass was either light or dark.
Stone:
Two green quartz stones set off the clasp.
Chain:
This sterling silver necklace was made to last. The soldering and wire wrapping in this necklace provide you with a strong, quality necklace that isn't going to break from a slight tug. The necklace measures about 19 inches long.
