is this a mineral?


I found this with a metal detector, it's fairly heavy in comparison to its size (35g). With a density of approx 5.5g/cm3. It's not magnetic nor is a magnet attracted to it, it's seems quite hard, Could it be Gelana lead sulfide? A streak test shows grey. Any help would be greatly appreciated as its got me all intrigued!

    Hi Gary

    Could be some type of metal that has become molten then set solid ie from a car fire the use of oxyacetylene cutting equipment etc.

    We're it has run onto the floor it has become discoloured but the surface has remained bright.
