Sample Image    |    QuickTimeVR Rotation
Anthracite coal.
I purchased about 1000 pounds in the early 1990s for blacksmithing use by Jim Zimmerman at our farm. We had to build a special box on the trailer to bring it home, and most of it is still sitting in large plastic containers in the shed. No problem finding a sample for the table!
The sound is steel plate being beaten with a blacksmith's hammer after heating in a coal fire.
