Anyone see this before?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Pounds-of-Natural-Volcano-Coffee-Rough-Stones-Cabbing-Tumble-Rocks-Reiki-/171267530824

I searched Google but just find people selling it. No info on what kind of mineral, MOH, etc...

Any info appreciated.

Thanks.

James:

If it is real, then it would be rightfully called "air fall tuff", a volcanic rock consisting primarily of obsidian. I did a sculpture with some in it: https://picasaweb.google.com/deborahkirkpatrick56/SculptureJewelry#5424956973512477106. Mine was a darker color than what is shown in your link.

Since it is glass, I think it would be easy for man to make something that looks like it, but I can't think why they'd bother since obsidian of this type is so inexpensive.
