This is a naturally magnetic specimen of magnetite, also known as lodestone because of its magnetism. The color is dark gray, and it comes with plenty of iron filings (magnetite dust) which stick to the specimen and create radiating patterns. You can take these off and put them on a piece of paper to show the magnetic field around the magnetite, a neat teaching tool for children and anyone who has never seen this intriguing natural phenomenon.
