Imagine two artisans, centuries apart, having a hand in creating the same piece of art!
'Black" beachglass, or “pirate glass" is one example of the older types of sea glass where this can happen.
It looks black, but when held up to the light, is usually dark olive green or even dark purple.
These old pieces can have air bubbles stuck inside indicative of being hand made.
