Thanks, but the shots are still too blurry. I was trying to get a look at the fractures and the texture of the surface. Put it on the table and just take a picture.

Fractures appear to be vitreous and conchoidal. Certainly could be glass.
Warm or cold when you put it on your upper lip?

I think it is probably glass.

You could try the old hair trick.

Wrap it with a few strands of human hair. Try to burn the hair with a lighter. If the hair does not burn, it is stone. If it does, it is glass.
