+2 votes

I found these in my garden clearing out tonnes of grey gravel , they were uncovered in an area no bigger than 1mrt square, I live in the UK and my husband believes the gravel either came from Cheddar or Dorset. any ideas or info would be great they have bubbles inside and one has swirls as if was hot at some point.

Looks like tree resin, but maybe glass
