I Forge Iron



Cinders from the Laurel Furnace, near my home. Thousands of tons of these were used on county roads as gravel. Most are black, but some have shades of green or blue and are quite pretty. The small ones are about 1 in. the big one is 3 in. These furnaces used charcoal as fuel to smelt iron ore.
