I also live in Cleveland and I believe that those are very old from the old CEI plant past Geneva. They are from very old light bulbs, perhaps 100 years old. I have one very much like it and several fragmented pieces. They are considered black but look purple in light in some places

insulator,? NEW

I found something similar to this, very small piece..what i found didn't look exactly the same on top but if you shine a light on it you could see deep red. I also found another piece recently had like a deep purple edge. I think it's some type of insulator?? I will try to find the pieces I have will post pictures to compare.
