Opalescent glass boulder.
These larger pieces were made from either tall oblong laminated blocks or tapering blocks, set up in such a way that the top is squashed with weights in the kiln.
Some were set up leaning over one side so they move more one side.
These larger pieces they were ground using a counter weight system, as they could be heavy - some of the larger ones started about 30 pounds in weight.
