    Can anyone identify this stone?

    It was given to me from a friend years ago. He states it came from a dump area near a sort of mill/factory or foundry. I am not sure. Anyone who has any info or idea on this item It would be appreciated.
    thanks

    I can't ID it but maybe you can follow this rock key and get an answer. It's pretty good. There is a series of questions that lead to other questions based on your answers until finally you find your rock

    Referred to as "slag", a byproduct produced from the foundry. Very common around sites such as those that you mention.
