Can anyone identify this lighting part?

I've been trying to source out replacements for the black part pictured here. Can anyone please identify it?
Thanks so much.

Don't mean to be a smart so and so but you've answered your own question. What are you trying to have us answer? Where to buy the bulb or where to buy the fixture?

Haha it does look that way. I know nothing about electrical. All I know is we need replacements for the black part of the fixture.

So the black thing is a GX5.3 lamp socket, for an MR16 halogen lamp. But I doubt you will find a replacement from anyone other than the fixture manufacturer. Most lamp sockets that fit those lamps will have wire leads to connect to the power source, whereas your fixture uses the metal mounting arms to both position the bulb and bring power to it. I spent some time searching and I didn't find a replacement; perhaps others here will know of a source. But I suggest you contact the fixture's manufacturer (if you know it). If it's IKEA, you may be out of luck.

There are many of those custom lighting systems. Search "wire track lighting systems" on google and use the image search. google/search=Wire+Track+Lighting+System&source

I found the socket in many kits but mostly from the European market.
