Where to find light blue iridescent
Recently acquired a large collection of rocks and lapidary equipment from a gentleman who�s eyes were failing him and decided to pass along over 40 years worth of �rock hounding� things. Have lovingly restored the equipment to beautiful running order and am going through nearly a ton of rocks. Found in this collection some �glass� looking material that is of a very light blue �iridescent� �opal-like� nature. It is definitely glass though not of any particular �defined� shape. The man I got this from said it was a �by-product.� Have pieced together something�s and decided this must be what is called �slag.� Cut and polished up some of this material and it is striking. There were only two pieces in the collection and he did not have a source for more.
Does anyone know where more of this material could be obtained? Would like to find the light blue iridescent/opal-like kind.
Thanks so much. Really enjoy reading the various message threads and also am learning a lot. Thanks for having this up on the internet.
