I was hoping someone might know what this is. Also located in Euphemia's endless pit is this mystery substance.
It's now stored in an old timber Justus Van Maurik cigar box, although I can't remember if that's what I found it in.
At first I thought this was amber, but I think it's too lightweight. It looks like melted glass that has been broken up like sugar rock.
It's the colour of old beer bottles, but it ranges in depth from a yellow colour to one large piece which is a dark brown.
The pieces vary in size from a large marble to finely ground pieces like raw sugar.
I found a couple of books in the house about gem fossicking and identification, etc, so I think it may be something that's come out of the ground.
Does anyone have any ideas?
