    In the basic materials engineering class I took, the professor showed us some samples of "metallic glass" of a different sort: an alloy of glass and iron. It had been made by blowing a vapor consisting of iron & glass onto a very cold surface, where it froze so quickly that there wasn't time for the individual constituents to separate. It was transparent like glass, but with a greyish tint, and had some suface rust.
