I can bring good, when only one you own
Leave me hanging, I'll be fine alone

For your amusement, I could be thrown
And I won't break, I'm tough like stone

By your friends, I could be step on
Without them, I would never be known

And here is last clue
To make your mind blown
I look like you
But I'm not your clone

What am I?

The answer could be

a horseshoe.

I can bring good, when only one you own
Leave me hanging, I'll be fine alone

Hanging a horseshoe above the door is sometimes considered lucky.

For your amusement, I could be thrown
And I won't break, I'm tough like stone

Throwing horseshoes is a popular game. And of course, it doesn't easily break.

By your friends, I could be step on
Without them, I would never be known

Horseshoes are put on by horses ("friends"), and without horses, they would be nonexistent. (Thanks, Will!)

And here is last clue
To make your mind blown
I look like you
But I'm not your clone

It looks like "U", but obviously is not my clone.
