PostPosted: Jan 29, 2017 22:10    Post subject: What is this?  

This was in my great grandfathers collection. Unfortunately, this specific stone/mineral/something is unlabeled.

I am of suspicion that this is some kind of glass slag, but want to make sure, and am very inexperienced in this sort of thing.

When I initially found it, it was covered in encrusted dirt.

Thanks!
