Physical Appearance and Location
There have been some debates as to whether or not a shore blossom is an herb or not. Birds will typically pull them from the sand beside riverbanks as if they were pulling a blade of grass from the ground. However, they don’t seem to grow like a typical plant. They look like glass beads that grow upon the riverbanks or the sand beside them. Some people also call them fisheyes.
Because of the strength and consistency of the beads, shore blossoms are often broken down and used as jewelry polish. Some people make a living out of finding them specifically for this reason.
Shore blossoms are usually utilized in forms of divination. The clarity of the bead somehow aids in the magical connotations required for those types of spells.
