What is this red glass??

Big red chunk of glass

Big red chunk of glass

We live near Rockford Illinois and during some removal of old landscaping discovered this very large chunk of red glass along with very old seashells buried in the dirt.

Three of the 4 sides are fracture breaks where it looks as though it came off an even larger piece.

The fourth side (pictured) looks like smooth naturally made flows and ridges.

Any clue?

My lucky good fellow, you've got a very magical piece there and any good Harry Potter fan will pay you dearly for it!
