Stone more then 100 gramms
Slag Glass Stone?
Are slag stones have any value for collectors and design?

Really looks like glass slag.
Some slags can be so beautiful as to be collected although I think I can say that people in this forum we prefer natural crystals.

I have a piece of slag in my collection. The only reason I have it is that I took a couple coke bottles and a wine bottle or two and melted it my self. Looks pretty neat.

Oh I have a piece of slag from a Zinc plant and a piece from a stainless steel plant as well.
I have no real reason to have them other than the opportunity arose to collect a sample and I took it. They are not treasured possessions but I like them well enough :-) Would not have spent a cent for a sample though.

The only 'glass' I have in my collection are natural glass - tektites and fulgerites, etc. Man-made items are not allowed in my collection, even though I once make my own crystals as a child. Just my own 'rule' that it has to be natural to be in my collection - but one can collect whatever one feels is interesting and attractive.....

I have a piece of Spanish Colonial era slag that shows blebs of lead remaining from the crude smelting technology of the day...
