About the Stone

From 1870 to 1885, Leland, Michigan, was a smog-filled industrial town anchored by the Leland Lake Superior Iron Company. After the smelting industry failed, the remains of the industry, including heaps of slag, were dumped into the harbor. Slag is a byproduct of the smelting process: raw ore is heated, and the desired iron ore is separated from various natural impurities. When those impurities cool, the result is vitreous, stone-like slag.

measures: L 2 3/4" x W 1"
