I'm not quite sure why anyone would choose to use boneglass over obsidian. Or even ice, in the right environment. It's too frail a material to be useful; really, it's just a status symbol for necromancers to show off how great and powerful they are. Do they not realise anyone can burn a corpse?
  Boneglass is a fragile material constructed from the combination of skeletal remains, intense heat, and necromantic magic. It is typically used for the mass-production of cheap weapons that splinter in the flesh of enemies (a property most useful in trap creation), and for particularly interesting decorations. It carries a sickly black colour marred with browns and off-yellows, but is relatively translucent and might be confused for a gemstone if left in one small lump.   Due to the methods used in its creation, boneglass holds a permanent aura of evil and necromancy unless specifically purified or somehow manufactured utilising only positive energy. This other method produces a slightly different material, usually known as white boneglass, that is used by some cultures and religions as a way of honouring the dead by incorporating them into furniture and weaponry. White boneglass is known to be slightly less fragile than true boneglass, but remains similarly useless in anything more than decoration.


Physical & Chemical Properties

Acts largely like glass, only harder to work and more fragile. Cannot be tempered.

Origin & Source

Boneglass was first forged in the times before the Worldrend, likely by the first cults of undeath that rose in the wake of the Undead Queen's ascension to godhood. The practice of forging boneglass was well-documented by these early necromancers and the knowledge has disseminated globally: the more fanciful of aspiring liches utilise boneglass in their constructions, and vampires find the substance an entertaining use of those they fully drain.
Smells evil.
Do not lick the necromantic glass.
A strange translucent mix of black, brown, and off-white.
