Cobalt blue Cornish seaglass, hand-carved into a droplet shape and is set in silver. This piece was found within Falmouth Bay.
Blue glass is always a treasured find as it is less common. It was used almost exclusively to package medicinal products that were poisonous! Anything in a blue bottle was not to be drunk and was also textured to help distinguish them and avoid accidental swallowing in the dark. Cobalt Blue origins are Optrex eye baths and Vick’s Rub! Before plastic was widely used, eye baths were made from cobalt blue glass.
This piece is available on a range of chain lengths. If you are unsure what each length looks like, please read about chain lengths in the FAQ’s. Longer chains are priced slightly differently – these are shown when changing the chain length option.
All Porth seaglass necklaces are beautifully packaged in a grey box, sealed with a turquoise strip. Each seaglass piece of jewellery also comes with a small card showing where it was beach-combed for provenance. Perfect for a special gift.
