    Found these while looking for beach glass.I live on Lake Erie so looking for glass is a favorite hobby. But these are crazy, and were found over a five year period of time. We are used to finding marbles witch I read are rare but we have over a hundred of those .

      Would you please post some separate photos of these. And it would be very good if I was able to enlarge the photos. Many thanks.

      I doubt they were tumbled, they are pitted and frosted. I’ve seen the tumbled ones they don’t look the same.

      The leaf shaped one is something I bought a few dozen of a few years ago when I was making pretty concrete stepping stones.
      A craft store in my area had enormous bins full of mesh bags containing all sorts of pretty glass shapes. The leaf shapes suited my designs so I bought a lot of them. Flower shapes were there also.
      These pretty little glass shapes were nice quality, pretty colors and very cheap! About a dollar for a bag of about a dozen.
      Maybe children played at the beach with them and left them to be washed away with their sand castles. But they originated at a craft store. :-)

      Also, your shell-shaped one came in a bag with other ocean/themed shapes such as fish and starfish and other shell shapes. So don’t be surprised if you come across the rest of that bunch.
      They probably look tumbled because of being worn down by sand.
      The leaf started out with an iridescent surface on one side but is probably worn away on yours.
