Smelting Waste or Slag

Slag is manufactured, sold and transported by the tones of tons for use as road construction aggregate and other industrial uses (click the link in the caption). Slag is often found by the side of railroad tracks where it has been transported. Even if the material did not come from a recent local smelting, it may have come from a much older smelting operation or been picked up by someone and thrown away in a different location. Slag can be found everywhere including some of the most unlikely locations operation For so it has literally been spread EVERYWHERE. Though slag can take many forms it is very distinctive in that it is riddled with large and small holes (vesicles). Slag looks just like slag, and NO meteorite looks like slag.
