TYPE 2.

Specimens in this group have the same physical features as the TYPE 1. specimens described on the previous page, with light olive green, glass-like fused top surface.  Some of the larger examples also have portions of the top surface of the specimen included with small amounts of sand, same as the TYPE 3 specimens described on the following page.  In addition, the surface or perimeter of each TYPE 2. specimen exhibits one or more interesting gas pockets or holes, similar to the small specimens in the group photograph, on the left.  Several of the largest specimens are individually illustrated for your review.
