The smoke and gases filled his lungs as he tried to outrun the rising lava. He had to get out of the volcano. An explosion deep in the mountain shook loose large shards of crimson obsidian from the walls of the long-dormant volcano. Ivan picked up one of the shards. It must have been sitting in the snow for hundreds of years, and though even he was barely sweating from the heat two hundred feet below, the piece of volcanic glass had a warm glow to it. It was pulsing, beating... kind of like a heart.
Blood glass is like a crimson-hinted obsidian. It's vitreous and slightly translucent. The texture is very smooth and glassy.
Physical & Chemical Properties
Blood glass seems to have a natural warmth to it. Even in the cold, it will give off a slight warm glow light a softly beating heart.
When combined with platinum, steel, and star metal, blood glass can be used to create an extremely rare and powerful alloy known as sky steel.
Geology & Geography
Made of volcanic glass, this stuff is typically found on the inside of volcanic mountains.
Life & Expiration
No piece of blood glass has ever been recorded to lose its warm glow. It is said, however, that if the volcano it came from died, the beating heart of the stone would die as well.
History & Usage
If melted down with platinum, steel, and star metal, blood glass can be used to create a powerful alloy known as sky steel.
