I personally don't think much of anything would leach out of the glass, it is pretty inert. Even if there were traces of salt in the glass, I can't imagine there would be enough to cause issues, especially with as many water changes as we do...

The glass formed by lightning strikes is called fulgurite...it isn't very pretty though lol. You can google it to see pictures. The sea glass most people talk about is from pieces of bottles and other glass objects getting tossed about and worn down in the ocean over a period of years...

sand polished glass is fine for aquarium. Just wash it good.

I guess I am just very picky and play safe for what to put in my tank lol.

I really do like the look of the glass though.

I'm probably going to do the same, once I get some sand to put in my tank.

Here's what it looks like (from my collection)

There is no salt in the glass - it's on the beach of freshwater.
