Looks unusual maybe nothing approx 7" height appears blue silver metallic material under the muck but only cleaned one piece in the dark 🙄 found with very small pea sized pure black beads? And multi coloured mosaik  floor tiles under it,  weird 😁 Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200712_224748__01__01.jpg, Views: 35, Size: 385.69 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200712_202431__01__01.jpg, Views: 35, Size: 325.47 KB

I'd leave that well alone, might be toxic waste from the old gasworks known as 'Blue Billy'.

Really oh my lord, it's got a pattern all over and the back is rounded and pieces slot together perfect but couldn't do it on the floor as to bumpy,  the site was a 1800s building so I'm told, I'll put some gloves on and wash it,  as I'm intrigued and I will also research the blue Billy now,  I have some unusual stones I'll upload later on, as always thank you for your advice 😁

Hi Pete just cleaned a little bit for a better colour view I couldn't get a clear answer on Google regarding Blue Billy the colour shows all colours including gold, the what I thought was patterns strangely look like fossils and clumps of metal??  It's also magnetic, what you Wrekon if safe I have a art piece in mind to create for charity, regards and thanks   Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200713_183259.jpg, Views: 12, Size: 192.02 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200713_184715.jpg, Views: 14, Size: 210.76 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200713_183112__01__01.jpg, Views: 15, Size: 208.61 KB

 Looks very pretty, but try not to poison yourself. This industrial waste (from kilns/gasworks/furnaces/smelters/chemical works etc) was buried for a reason.

I'd actually only just remembered what we was taught as children regarding danger colours in heat, wow I forget but childhood memories just flash backed. I've binned them as prevention is cheaper than a cure 😁
