While I was digging near a abandoned mine in Arizona I discovered this item. It looks similar to a shotgun shell, but it is made of a solid black rock-like material. Around the item I found bottles dating back to the 1870s. I was wondering if anyone could give me their opinion on what it could be.

Thanks for replying. In my opinion this is a really cool find because is was probably from a miners lantern. Its possible is was made by the Columbia Dry Cell Battery Company because I didn't find anything newer than the 1910's near it
