Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't mill scale just various iron oxides and completely harmless?
Yes. And what I'm seeing on the picture ain't no mill scale. Mill scale basically looks like blued steel, and is basically oxides formed during heating and 'pressed' into the steel during (hot) rolling.
