Is sea glass valuable?

Sea glass is valuable. That is, genuine, beachcombed, pure sea glass that has not been machine tumbled or artificially created.  Art glass is lovely, but it is not sea glass.  You can purchase real sea glass from reputable dealers.  Jewelry grade sea glass is not glassy, is opaque and smooth to the touch -  no sharp edges.  The Greek and Bermuda sea glass I have found is mostly jewelry grade.  I carefully select what I use in jewelry.  Of course, bonfire sea glass has more texture to it, but it is still  not sharp or glassy.  Sea glass is becoming rarer,
 so its value is increasing.  Hence, more sea glass imitators!
