    My bees were collecting this Black/Dark purple pollen from I believe poppies among a few other flowers.. It is possible if you crushed/spun a cell with the pollen into the honey.

    I have a question though, is it store bought or local honey? (Raw, filtered etc)

    The tiny black flecks in your honey may be tiny pieces of cocoon from cells where larvae were raised or ash from your smoker.
