Hi

I want your help in identifying this stone as far as you can go from the picture. It is very green, fairly heavy relative to its size. There are multiple clay & empty bubble inclusions (with very fine lines between them) inside the stone that are visible to the naked eye. It broke easily using only my hands into three pieces in clear lines resulting very smooth, irregular, shiny surfaces with sharp edges. After that each of the three pieces became so hard /strong/ to break further even using hand tools. I have attached pictures of it.
Thanks

Good observations and info. What you have here is slag glass left over from some human activity. Not really valuable but very pretty stuff.
