I imagine anyone burning nut, and stove coal in a hand fired stove will have some interesting clinkers fall through their ash dump.

Unless another thread has been started, maybe this can be stickied as a call for pictures of your prized clinkers?

I'll start it out. I think the middle one is a dinosaur poop...

:lol: prehistoric spinach - that's awesome.... yeah, red ash has high iron content and low ash fusion temperature.. It's from a hand fed burning nut size, that had excessive fines in it also..

No pictures, but it varies year to year. This year the coal's turning into nice white ash with just a few small white clinkers that are easy to crumble.

Two years ago was the worst. I had coal with a lot more iron and took out a bunch of what liked like golf ball and baseball sized meteorites. :shock: And, there was a lot of broken up wood in it.
