True Reds do in fact use gold to turn molten glass it's vivid red hue. This is why even today, red glass is very expensive. Other sources of red sea glass could have been running lights on boats (you know - red right return), taillights on cars that were dumped offshore to make reefs, or decorative household glass. Orange was also most likely from an old decorative household item. In the tons of sea glass I have personally collected, I have only ever been fortunate to get 5 pieces of orange.
