Fish Float Sphere Pendant
There is evidence of glass floats used by Norwegian Fishermen as early as 1844. Today most glass floats remaining in the ocean are stuck in a circular pattern of ocean currents. Occasionally storms or certain tidal conditions will break some floats from this pattern and wash them ashore.
