    Some of my best finds. In my quest to get an idea what these river gems started out as, I learned that the manganese they added to glass before WWI would react to the sun's uv rays and eventually turn purple.
    These shards are all quite thick and include a perfume bottle, bottle necks with lips, and cobalt shards.

      I do the same here in Western Australia.
      Every piece has a story , a memory of where it was found.
      Lovely
