It could be, it also could be slag from a metal working foundry. Slag sometimes have strange properties.
The only way to find out is to bring it to someone who knows about meteorites.
I have a chunk of Nodular Magnetite that has a black coating on it. It is either nodular magnetite or an iron meteorite. It will distort a compass
and also gives off Ions. Without testing it is impossible to tell and I am not into paying to have that done. It's a neat rock and it didn't cost me
a cent yet.
