Is it chaga?

So, this is my first time harvesting what I am 98% sure is chaga. I've recently become very interested in their health benefits and have been looking into information on wild harvesting them. While in Crandon this weekend, I found this cluster on a birch tree (I've been obsessively checking birch trees whenever I see them) and I'm hoping someone can confirm that it is indeed chaga. I would hate to try using it and have a disaster. Haha. I'll attach a few pictures that I took of it.

Thanks in advance!! :D
