PostPosted: Aug 13, 2018 16:30    Post subject: What is this?  

Hello!

I found this in my grandmothers rock/crystal collection after she passed away. I know what most of the other stones are but I don’t know what this is? I was wondering if anyone had any ideas?

Based on the looks of it alone, it's most likely just a piece of glass or slag.

Notice the conchoidal fracture and bubbles = Green glass.
