Looks a bit like celestite, given the apparent blue tinge. But of course impossible to say.
Will it not fit on the gemmoraman?

It comes from an email I got from our new member Rusty.
I told him to post on the forum and he forwarded the pics to me.

I'm not a gemologist I just wanted to know what it was and if I could sell it I dug it up. Don't know much about it

Welcome to the forum.
If you dug it up, chances are good it is slag glass. Look for spherical bubbles within. Those are the best giveaway.

If you want to break off a wee bit, like an inch and send it to Stephen or I, we can test it for you.
