Found this on the beach in around Netarts Oregon.
Took best pictures that I could. It looks melted in the middle and has a a glittery look to it up close. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like waste slag probably from a beach party, could be the burnt remains of sand encrusted beer and pizza. Absolutely nothing natural, NOT a meteorite, NOT from a volcano.Burnt garbage.

I tend to agree - beach party slag (so could be a little bit toxic)

A geologist contacted me after seeing this post and told me it was not beach slag. It is most likely hematite we found out after several tests.
