Could it be a fire starter?
My initial thought too, though an interesting stone whether natural or not. :D

Interesting stone & well found,
I thought a small plague stone, that would be filled with vinegar, then coins left in it outside a diseased village, hamlet etc, to pay for the food delivered & left there by outsiders or merchants,
the vinegar was thought to stop the disease being passed on by the coins.
But it may be a bit small for that?
