Yeap... the piece I put in water last night has swelled up a good bit and is soft and spongy already. Underneath the soft parts I can still feel harder places. It's probably the binding agent and the wood fibers, but still kinda creepy when it was all wiggly and jello like. I wonder what's in Exoticas that is "binding" them together?
The Egyptian - most QL's do have sulphur in them, most naturals don't (are aren't supposed to). Akhla's are QL's - explodie quiklites - LOL
matt - nothing else I added was in the water, just standard tap water.... but we all know what they add to Tap Water these days to make it safe for us to drink. I wonder if anything in that could be aidding, but I don't think it's the main cause of the "wiggly coal".
