ID: Rock or Fossil?

Recommended Posts

Found this rock on the beach in Runswick Bay, Yorkshire.  It is very light weight compared to its size.  Is it a rock or some type of fossil?  Could it be Scoria?

Any help with the ID is appreciated.

It's most likely to be industrial slag (often near identical to vesicular basalt) - there's a lot of it around there.

I think that's most likely, rounded/worn by the sea...

Thank you all for your input.  After doing some research on the area, I agree that is is most likely Industrial Slag.

I believe it is a rock of volcanic origin.
