That was there was just the gray showing from the top and then I soaked in your muriatic acid took off a lot of The Rock but also slowly eat away at the metal...... Which is what I'm thinking is is some type of metal...

I think that might be fossil coral.

I'm really bad at pictures - but I don't see anything metalic looking.  Some parts look almost jaspery.  It could be some sort of marine fossil.  I'd take it to a local university and see if a paleontologist can ID it for ya. If you do, let us know what they say.  I'm a little bit curious.
