Thank yopu all
The striations can only be seen under magnification - otherwise it just looks frosty - which is what threw me off.
It seems odd that a knock can do this without cracking the surface. Just another of the many mysteries of glass !

aa: great post - I LOVE languages and this is reading it square:
conch - Muschel (the most expensive pearls by the way)
bruise - break: Bruch
conchoidal - muschelig
everyone understands German this way - mother of pearl breaks
'muschelig'

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)
