Slag?

I am posting this for Tofino Photography because he requested a better look at this piece we dug up on our property. We assume it is a chunk of slag. At one time there was a horse livery/blacksmith shop here.

He asked if I could chip a piece off to get a look at the inside. Am I ever glad he did! It is sparkly silver. So pretty! We also thought the entire piece was magnetic. Not so, the large chunk of silver colored metal is, but the small piece that we broke off is not.

It is not overly heavy. It is 2 1/4 inches at it’s greatest length. 1 1/2 inches at it’s greatest width.

Warning: Clicking on these images may produce a very large one.

  1. Interesting turn of events – if you’re anywhere within proximity of
    a large body of water you might want to keep an eye out for a
    person or persons with a peg leg and eye patch, a parrot on the
    shoulder would of course be a dead giveaway.
