This looks an awful lot like shale. The kind of stone that grows in layers up in the mountians where i used to live. Is it light? Is it brittle? If the Answer is yes then perhaps you might wanna think about wrapping it in something. Some shale has naturally occurring asbestos and can be dangerous! I am no expert but here is a pic
