Black sea glass - what could it have been?

Found this in a matter of an hour in about 30 feet. Most have lips or ridges, one has numbers. Any thoughts on what it was?

exactly like mine!
by: Joss

These pieces are exactly like mine found on the east coast of Canada. Two things: they mark like chalk ie on a stone and they break easily so can't be glass.
It's been suggested to me that they might be vulcanite.
I'll look into the clay targets .......

Black glass at Shilshol or Golden Gardens
by: Skip

Black skeet targets are made out of pitch (resin) and clay. VERY Fragile!

Black Sea Glass

Typically black sea glass is from old medicine bottles from the early 1900's

I think it is clay from skeet shooting as well.

Skeet Discs?
by: Anonymous

They look like skeet discs. Many are black with yellow lettering before weathering.

Pretty darn sure

Yes, glass. There is writing on some that would indicate glass. And it is not clay or pottery, but glass.

Are you sure its glass? I've found pieces like this that I thought were glass, but it turns out they were just shards of those skeet things people practice shooting at...

Very cool! Where near Seattle did you find all those black pieces? Have you held them up to the light to see what color they are?
