• ITEM: Slag. A biproduct of smelting pig iron from yesteryear.

In 1869 Bay Furnace operated near Christmas Michigan along the lake. It was collected along the shores of Lake Superior a long time ago. Some of the slag from that area is purple and some is green. The green slag often has this airated bubbly look and is light weight. It is matt finish but the inside of the bubbles are shiny giving it an unusual flavor indeed.

• PRICE: $15.00 OBO!
____________________________________________________________

♥ Non-traditional elements are gaining in popularity and many artisans are embracing the wild & rugged beauty of unusual specimens to use as adornments.

For the most part, the gemstones for the job are those left in a more natural free-form state. They are manipulated just enough to showcase their rugged character and are a good choice to add texture and honesty to a design. They are not defined by traditional refined beauty but rather are left uninhibited, stony, and overtly earthy.

• QUANTITY: 7 pebbles
• SIZE: 13 to 35 mm range.
• SHAPE: tumbled pebble
• DRILLED: near tops/ side to side / four have 1 millimeter sized hole/ three have a 3.5mm hole
• COLOR: greenish
• TREATMENTS/ENHANCEMENTS: none
• OVERALL GRADE: commercial/All rough & wild cut material comes with inherent imperfections and non-symmetrical shapes, which in effect is part of what adds to their rugged untamed style and as such the material is not necessarily sub-standard. Perfection grading is not performed on any stones classified as “wild”.
• FYI: No special handling necessary.
