HAVE YOU EVER found a piece of sea glass while walking on the beach? After years of being tumbled by the ocean, and sand rounding away its sharp edges, sea glass is a smooth lump of colored glass, with a frosted look.

CBS Sunday Morning ran an interesting story on sea glass this past weekend: https://www.cbsnews.com/video/sea-glass-how-trash-becomes-a-treasure/
