In short – tumbled sea glass is glass that has been tumbled to mimic the processes that, when occurring naturally, result in the creation of sea glass you can find on the beach. To ensure that tumbled glass is as close to sea glass as possible, rocks, seawater, sand, seashells and various other items can be used in the tumbling process.
The term “Sea glass” is often used freely to describe all types of glass, whether it comes from the sea, river or a tumbler. There is a difference between those, however.
Sea glass is what you find along sea or ocean beaches. Beach glass can be found along river banks or on a lake shore. Both sea glass and beach glass can take from 20 to even 200 years to form by the forces of waves and currents.
Tumbled glass is created in a way that mimics the natural processes. It can be virtually indistinguishable from beach and sea glass but can be created a lot quicker – in a matter of weeks rather than years. Since it’s made in a controlled environment, it allows for creating many different colours, shapes etc. It also doesn’t require polluting the sea with glass waste.
We provide only 100% genuine recycled glass. Some of it comes from bottles, some from industrial waste – it’s all real, unpainted glass. We tumble it with genuine materials (collected at Costa Blanca beaches) that it would naturally tumble with in the sea: beach rocks, seashells, sand, seawater etc. There are plenty of vendors out there offering plastic sea-glass knockoffs. With LoveSeaGlass you can be sure that what you get is 100% genuine, unpainted glass. This ensures that the colour is 100% permanent and will never come off. Guaranteed.
