Black glass, or “pirate glass,” is glass that looks black when found on the beach, but when held up to the light, its true colour is revealed. The pirate glass is usually dark olive green, often with an air bubble stuck inside which indicates that it was made by hand and thus very old
Unlike other sea glass shards, black glass, because it was made earlier and often hand-blown, is usually filled with bubbles. A good way to tell the age of a piece of sea glass is by its thickness and amount of bubbles. If the black shard is very thick and has a fair amount of bubbles, it may date from the early 1700s to the mid 1800s.
