I have a very deep scratch on my windshield from a piece of dry lake
mud that got dragged by my windshield wiper. I'm not sure what
correlation you can make between something scratching glass and its
identification. I'm pretty certain the dry lake mud was not from a
Michael in so. Cal.

Concerning my scratch test, the scratches produced are very light, but I'm not going by how heavy or light the scratches might be, I'm feeling for how the stone bites into the glass, which it does with not any more pressure than say when you rub your eyes. Concerning images of a window, it's whole and has no window, if and when I get around to producing one I'll be sure to add some to my website and give a heads up.
