enter image description here We found this rock in field, it is blue/dark blue and around it has 1 cm wide zone where it is like melted, it is 20 cm long, 1 7cm high and 15 cm long, it is almost a square shape, it was found in Latvia so it can't be volcanic rock.

Scale and hardness will make it easier and more detailed, but it looks like scoria, with a rather nice crusting effect.

You might also consider industrial sources, some smelting slag can look like scoria because it is produced in the same way molten minerals mixed with gas.

    $\begingroup$ @Reinis you mean latvia has no active volcanoes, the whole baltic sea is volcanic in origin. It might even be ejecta from the Dobele impact crater. $\endgroup$ – John May 26 '17 at 23:02

    $\begingroup$ @ reinis I mean things like geological formation, composition, and signs of transport. $\endgroup$ – John May 27 '17 at 14:17

    $\begingroup$ not helpful. Please read this earthscience.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/124/… sections 3 and 4 specifically. And as I said it is a different question. $\endgroup$ – John May 28 '17 at 6:24
