To make glass, a manufacturer heats silicon dioxide to 3090ºF, the temperature that marks its shift into liquid form. As the white hot substance cools, it settles into an amorphous solid, that is, a material with some of the crystalline order of a solid and some of the molecular randomness of a liquid. Along with ceramic and diamond, it is one of the harder materials readily available from home. Its 5.5 rating on the Mohs scale indicates, simply, that it will scratch most materials before they scratch it.

A piece of sea glass is a glass of milk is a mitten is an unopened letter. It carries……….I can’t remember. This piece of sea glass is pretty soft; it must be old. This one is actually just a grain of sand; it must be really old.
