Is It Really Sea Glass?

As a member of the North American Sea Glass Association, I have promised to maintain the value and integrity of genuine, natural beach sea glass. When I go into a shop and see a big sign promoting SEA GLASS JEWELRY and it is really just fake tumbled glass it REALLY bothers me!! I don't understand how some of these big companies get away with selling "sea glass jewelry" when it is just glass in sea glass colors, all in perfect neat shapes and sizes. At first, I wanted to argue about why that jewelry shouldn't be called sea glass jewelry, but now I just try to remain calm and educate when I can:))
