Is the black shiny? Can you scratch it. Is it magnetic? Three questions to ponder. It could be a meteorite if the black is from burning on the ride through the atmosphere. But they are rare. If it is heavy it might be a metallic ore.

No it is not shining. It can not be scratched by quartz. I did not test for magnetic.
