They say nature has its way of giving back, and for one Russian sea that took empty bottles from booze-thirsty humans, it’s all surprisingly beautiful.

In the past, the Ussuri Bay, located northeast of the Peter the Great Gulf, served as a dumping site for glass bottles and porcelain.

But thanks to years of erosion, these bottles of beer, vodka and wine were broken and polished to become artificial pebbles that now make up the so-called “Glass Beach.”

Known to Russians as Steklyashka, the Ussuri Bay appears most stunning during the winter as snow highlights the colors of the glass, according to The Siberian Times.

In the summer, the shore, along with its clean water, shines with the sun’s reflection.
