This 80 lb. chunk of two-toned deep blue, light aqua glass from the Hemingray, Covington plant site was partially exposed after last winter's flood water receded. After being extracted, it had to be carried up a steep, rocky, wooded embankment only then to be carried about 100 feet and lugged about another hundred feet to the top of the earthen flood wall and then carfully rolled down the other side to where the car was parked. Note the CD 113 next to it for size comparison.
