Peter Bowles is on a distinguished road
We had the same about five years ago. We ordered about 5 tonnes of the 96 nuggets specifically for an architectural project we were working on. The stuff was absolutely riddled with stone. Some of it sharp and very white and quite small (around 1mm), most of it was grey and 2-3-4 mm and sometimes 5-6 mm across. Also all sorts of iron streaks and undissolved silica through some of it.

Absolutely riddled with the stuff - very shoddy indeed.

Saw the same at ACAD a couple of years ago too, though not to the extent we had it in our shipment.

Spectrum didn't seem to care and I get the feeling they were just happy to unload what must have been known as a second rate material to an overseas customer.

Pretty shoddy really.
