I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest it's a piece of slag.

Thank you for looking into it. Thats kinda my opinion as well. I went to meteorite and slag pics on the web and found nothing that resembles it. It gave me a pretty good signal on my 800. I think i'll hang on to it just for the heck of it. Thanks again for responding!

Does it have any weight to it ? The slag in my area is usually more porous and fairly light weight.

It could very well be a chunk of meteorite. Not all rocks look exactly alike , especially one that could have been burning up in the Earths atmosphere. Does it have a layered make up.

Part of it seems to be layered, but it is hard to say for sure. It is extremely heavy for its size. I have dug up a lot of hot rocks (not where i found this rock) and their composition seems to be quite different. when all this virus stuff calms down i am going to take it to the university and have them take a look. Thanks for your interest.

Thats a good idea , the University should help get some of your questions answered. But don't quote me on that. LOL
