It's very hard to tell from that photo. To an untrained eye (such as mine) it could be almost anything!  Could you put it in context for us?

Does a magnet stick to it?

Very unlikely unless they have been processed as there are several of them with a similar size and shape.  To me they look more like balls of pitch with gravel stuck in them!
