Good afternoon its been a while,  ive had nothing but mobile phone issues,  please could you identify the attached please,  the glass I'm finding lots in places it should not be, e.g bottom of 12ft lakes buried amongst tree stumps and fossils some 3 inch blocks as the pick, some 12 inch (also black glass with no holes) pics coming soon, lots more stuff to be added today as need to start cataloging things as getting bit overwhelmed and my excavation will be coming to an end here soon .

Thankyou in advance

Hi,
First one looks like concrete/pebble dash. Second is a nice fossilised slab of (Silurian?) seabed with crinoids, brachiopods, corals and probably more. The glass is presumably industrial furnace waste.

Thank you the location I got them from was in deep water thats been drained amongst fossils and under tree trunks undisturbed I'm baffled as how they could get there I'll upload  the other pics shortly thank you...updated 2130 the area searching today found out was quick sand after standing still for a long time lol and found more concrete that looks like the concrete egg but flat wow and I thought I'd found an egg still love it though.

The second piece looks identical to the Silurian beds at Wren’s Nest in Dudley, roughly where are you in the West Mids? As Pete says, the third really does look like industrial waste/slag, which the West Midland are in bo shortage of and was dumped all over the place at the height of the industrial revolution.

Thanks not Far from west Brom I live by dudley but never actually been fossil searching there, the glass items baffle me as it's in places you wouldn't expect  some plain some full of holes some like ant hills fascinating,  I now you guys now way more than me and you advice is always appreciated,  remembering everything is way harder than I thought, just found this one had to stop due to dark, because I do art I'll still keep useless stuff as sell it as art for charity, any ideas what this is please. I have a fair few hundred fossils to clean so hopefully put on soon for advice (not all though as I think I'll drive you mad) thank you

Look like pebbles made up of predominantly white/clear cemented mineral grains, probably quartz.
