I hate to add fluff to a thread but.... I have no idea. It appears as if it were molten at some point. Are there volcanoes nearby? By nearby, I mean within, I don't know, 100 miles or so? Any natural sources of magma? Can you give more precise details of where it was found?
Of course my mind jumped immediately to meteorite and I have to thank you for not making that your headline and guiding people's thoughts.
It's more likely some type of igneous rock but I'll save diagnosis for someone more knowledgeable...
