Strange dark substance in my soap

I just found a soft, dark mass in a bar of white soap. WTF could it be?

I noticed when I was taking a shower that a small area of my bar of ordinary white Dove soap, maybe about a quarter used up (you can still see the logo), seemed strangely dark. I scratched at it with my finger and apparently there is some sort of substance there distinct from the rest of the soap (the rest seems totally normal). The color is dark gray with a yellow/light green tinge. It is soft, as some of it came away when I scratched it. The size of the visible area of the substance is maybe 1/4 cm by 3/8 cm and the shape is vaguely oval or rectangular (i.e., it is all together, not spread out at all). I put the bar of soap away and used another, but now I am really creeped out. What the hell could this be?
