    Re: another weird brick?

    A second brick? I think it could be resin used to rub on the bows of an orchestra instrument.

    Salt Brick?

    They make mineral salt blocks in brick sizes for convenience. Those big field blocks weight almost fifty pounds.

    It's tough for the 'little woman' to haul the big blocks around.

    Is the texture of your 'slice' granular? Of couse, I have no idea if the mineral block would burn, but salt I think tends to just melt...........

    So much for my guess.

    Yes , it is granular . It slices easily with a razor - and it crumbles easily . When I did the burn test , it gets soft before it ignites .

    Yeah, eventually you might find a piece of bismuth from soldering or arsenic from case hardening and we'd miss these puzzlers.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Re: another weird brick?

    Here is a long shot...........could it be a brick of buffing compound (jeweler's rouge) that is used to polish metals. The end looks worn by something round, like a buffing wheel. Does it smell like a burnt crayon when it burns?
