Well I know you can use black soul gems for quests. There is a quest at one of the daedric(spelling) shrines.

Black soul gems can trap the souls of NPCs, whereas normal soul gems cannot.

I swear they're used 4 necromancy or sumin, you no the collossal 1, from mages guild quest, I think it's a glitch but I went up 2 count hassildor of skingrad and used it on him. He actually went into the soul gem. I used the soul gem on the crusader's sword and I cured myself of vampirisim. Strange....

You can also create black soul gems as well if you are interested. To do so you need an empty grand soul gem. These aren`t easy to find but they be bought from certain alchemists though they don`t come cheap. Once you have one, travel to a place where there is an alter such as Dark Fissure, Fort Istarius, or the Elven ruin of Wendelbek (I think there is another one but I cannot remember what it is called). If there isn`t already a purple light shining down on the altar wait until there is (it is the shade of the revenant and happens only once a week. You may be familiar with this if you happen to be in the mages guild and are working for Raminas Polas at the Arcane University.) When the light appears, place the empty grand sould gem into the altar and cast the soul trap spell on it. Ta-da! You have a black soul gem.

As for using the collosal soul gem on Count Hassildor I think that must be a glitch because you cannot use it against him. If you place the cursor on him it changes to a crown which donates the fact that he is one of the main characters (as are all counts and countesses) so cannot be killed.

Black souls gems capture not just animal souls but traps races too such as nords imperials dark elves high elves ect. Ect. Sure the soul level does not go higher than "grand" but it's still better than hacking away at your enemy with umbra and it saying this soul is too big. (quick question, imma arch mage and I have the collasal black soul gem in my inventory I killed the king of worms but I still can't get rid of the collasal soul gem cause it's still a quest item)
