Any Professionals Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Looks like slag and/or smelting glass to me. Maybe a piece of clinker brick in there too. IIRC, the green comes from fluxes that get oversaturated with Fe, reds were often Pb. Unevaporated zinc films gave opalescence. It's been a year since I was playing around with smelting, can't remember exactly. 

One photo (the one that appears copied from a webpage) is the only real looking rock to me, and it's some kind of sage green quartzite or grainy chert.

Were these all found in the same location?

I concur most of them look like slag or clinker.  The green banded one without lots of air bubbles looks like some jasper I have in the back shed.
