Help Identify Large Sea Glass

I found this in 2007 or 2008 while living in the FL Keys.

I was scuba diving (spear fishing) a small ways southeast of the Marathon Jumps - approximately 40 miles offshore.

I was at between 30 to 40 feet deep and saw part of it sticking out of sand.

It is 1.7 pounds, 3 inches high at highest, 4 inches long at longest and about 4.5 inches around.

Unfortunately no identifying letters or numbers or any markings. Just very colorful and interesting.

Probably a hunk of junk ir glass fishing float but this hunk of junk is one of my favorite things I've found diving.

Thank you in advance.

It's a beautiful piece! The thicker the older. Wish, I knew what it came from. Enjoy your beautiful find.

It is most probably a piece of Slag Glass. No tumble or frost on it due to pH of gulf and no waves or pebbles....great find!
