  1. Back in the 60's we used a similar phenomena called a Bologna Bottle.

    The "bottle" was a flask with the interior stressed like the Prince Rupert's Drop, but the outside of the flask was tempered glass.

    The bottle could be used to drive a nail into wood, but drop in some sand and shake the bottle and it "explodes" like the Rupert!
