Confederate (Brierfield) Slag

Straight from the Confederate iron forges of the US Civil War, this cabochon was cut from a piece of Confederate Slag. This slag was collected from the ruins of the Brierfield Iron Works near Birmingham; a product of the Confederate war effort before the iron works were destroyed by the Federal Tenth Missouri Cavalry on March 31, 1865. It has a few tiny air bubbles and numerous tiny dots of color. There are three small dots that look almost like metal, harder than the slag; I'm still researching what they may be. You can own this very cool piece of history. Not for sale to people in Missouri (only kidding).

31mm x 19mm x 9.5mm.   Weight: 42.10 carats.

Every one of my cabochons is custom cut to take the best advantage of the particular slab from which it is fashioned. Colors may vary somewhat from what is pictured due to differences in computer monitors.
