I'm lucky, becuase I have an antique dealer who will give me at least $25 for a box of commons or slicks. Always take cobalt! I always can sell a box of common cobalt for around $40, again it depends on where you live.

If they are colorful, I take and break them and use the shards as shown. If I dig a good color of shard I keep it as well. Then I buy an inexpensive shadow box frame, one that the back can be easily removed and cut a piece of glass (or have it cut) to fit this opening. This way you have glass on the front and back. They can be hanged, but are much more attractive sitting on a window sill or ledge. Here are two different frames.
YES! That's the stuff. Nice way to display. Awesome.

A double-pane window will also work. I'm in the process of taking some discarded old wood framed windows and filling them with marbles.
