    I had heard from a very reliable source that the 60kg mass had been lost in the sand after it had been hidden by the finder. Hopefully those photos are current and it's in safe hands, it's a beautiful look iron meteorite.

    Awesome to see this! I took my little nephew out on a quick hunt a while back. I gave him a bunch of gear, he was stoked!

    Do not use magnet on meteorites

    Every fresh fall has fusion crust. There's nothing in your pictures that looks remotely like a freshly fallen fractured meteorite. The second photo shows what I believe you are mistaking as fusion crust, but it clearly is not. And the caliche on it is a terrestrial process. Keep sending them to anyone who will look, eventually after you hear "no" enough times hopefully you can focus your energies elsewhere.
  4. It was probably collected because it didn't look like any other rock and was only later recognized from its green fusion crust to possibly be a meteorite. There are witnessed Aubrite meteorite falls that, had they not been witnessed, would have gone unrecognized as visitors from outer space.

    Meteorites do not start fires.

    I missed the part where they agreed it was a meteorite.

    I.D. help

    I have to agree with Bob's assessment, some sort of ore perhaps, looks to be water-worn smooth. It does not display any traits of a meteorite that I can see from the photos.
  10. Have you ever handled a piece? It's almost like charcoal, it literally just falls apart.

    help plz

    There are plenty of rusty iron meteorites out there, but they don't make very pretty pictures. Many irons are very stable due to the alloy nature of their make-up.

    Looks like a fossil maybe? Certainly not a meteorite.
