No idea what that rock might be. Trying to ID from photos alone is extremely difficult. If you could tell us the hardness, streak color, and specific gravity, it would help us ID this stone. Better pictures would help too.

Rock and mineral id  is dependent on density ,color ,streak, regional geoloogy, scale(throw a quarter into your pics) and a few other criteria.

Without the above, we are just spittin in the wind.

But, yeah, looks like you could gave "left it right there "(where you found it) thus the term leaverite(there).

could be a pyrite nodule, try scraping it against an unglazed white tile or the underside of the toilet tank lid and see if it leaves a mark (streak) and note the color of it. Pyrite would leave a black greenish streak.

Any luck on this? I've found a similar stone but about 200lbs .. its paramagnetic .. heat test reveals no change after heating red.. it rings high on metal detector indicating non-ferrous .. grey black streak.. super dense rock.. platinum ore nugget?
