Looks like slag from mining operations, or if you are lucky could be a meteorite. What type of area did you find it in?
i found it on a beach i am from Edinburgh Scotland where it was found there aren't any mining operations thanks for taking a look
Is it light or heavy? If it is heavy, see if it is attracted to magnets. If it is, it may in fact be a meteorite. Or it may just be ocean debris.
Wow! Interesting...looks like thers' gold in them ther' rocks...looks similiar to glass from volcanos...obsidian? Then it loojs like one of them might have some gems trapped up in there???...neat. I am interestedto hear what a n ole' time miner has to say and a geologist.
