It _looks_ similar but short of a chemical analysis, I don't think anyone will be able to tell absolutely. On the other hand, I don't think anyone will be able to definitively say otherwise, either. Does it have "lime stone
" deposits like some of the others?" Do you know if it came from Israel
(and where in Israel
?). There is green volcanic glass
(green obsidian) from Central America, but I doubt that it would look like this.
There is a youtube video about a giant glass
slab discovered in Israel
(12 tons?), they hypothesize (but that is all it is, a hypothesis), that it is a window from the Temple. That may be a little optimistic, but it also may be one of the huge slabs before it got broken up. I would give the name, but I don't know what it would be, I couldn't probably find it again if I wanted to, less than 30-20 minutes.
