I found this a while back looking for beach glass. What’s everyone think?

From a photo either Quartz or calcite. Try lemon juice or vinegar, (a mild acid test) or dilute hydrochloric acid (strong acid)if you have some to see if it effervesces or bubbles, if so it’s calcite.
I have nitric muriatic for testing gold. Would that work? One more picture. Don’t mind the dirty nails. Been on a treasure hunting marathon this week

the 90% angle shown in pic 3 makes me think it IS glass. Or, some other man made something.
