Ozokerite?

Is this rock light?

Does it feel like plastic and look the part as well?

Oil boils up through cracks in the earth and deposits paraffin which hardens.

Maybe a Carbonado...

A black diamond from an asteroid impact?

I have one as well in Colorado.

No one can identify it.

It to cannot be scratched with a saw or a drill.

In my undergraduate work in geology I studied under many well-published geological scientists. I have just begun my quest to be a science educator, however I have a sizable collection of resources and some course-related field experiences to draw from.
