A little over 20 years ago, whilst diving in the Caribbean, a friend of ‘1421’ came across some shards of Ming Dynasty porcelain and a piece of Blue Ingot Glass, shaped into a heart. Along with the shards, he discovered a Bronze Step Cover and pieces of Medicine Jars made of thick black and brown glass, and some unusually shaped lead pieces. The glass resembles some of the first glass ever made in China. The ship’s bell and anchor, which have been retrieved, have no markings on them. Local folklore has it, that this ship sank long ago, during a hurricane with no survivors.
We would be most interested to hear your views on this find. We are not able to divulge the precise location of the wrecks as yet.
