Hi all, 
I found this piece of rock on the Isle of Harris in Scotland recently. It is very light, brittle and can be scratched easily. To my geological untrained Eye and research, is this fossilised wood, ie Jet Black? Thank you.  38B7C135-D02F-4D80-97AC-E8D799485BBD.jpeg

Definitely not jet I'm afraid. Looks like an industrial furnace 'slag' of some kind, possibly from a glassworks?
