I have a boule end of a pulled synthetic on its way to me, but of unknown composition.

I'm told the material in question has a density of ~4.2-4.4 but that's all the information I have.

Any suggestions of other tests to do that might help narrow down the candidates? The RI is well over 1.8 so my refractometer won't be much help.

Thanks!

-Allan
