Meteorite Research, Resources, Identification, etc.

Recommended Posts

I have added a simple brochure from UCLA Collection of Meteorites that you can review and it will help you determine if you have a meteorite.

Please add more links to aid new and old meteorite hunters how to identify a meteorite. We have done this in many threads but it is scattered. If you know a good post please copy and paste it here from a different thread. Skip will be watching to keep it on topic.

What makes you think it's a meteorite?

I've taken it to several geologist and to the local mineral and gem society and no one can identitify it. It also passes all the tests.

Feel free to post some pictures to an identification thread, geologist and gem folk rarely know what meteorites look like. The only conclusive tests are done by a laboratory that can classify meteorites. Not knowing what something is certainly does not make it a meteorite.

This rocks are from my previous finds.

 

The first one looks,like  its NWA stone chondrite with distinct chondrules.

 

The second second rock has small chondrules, and some other minerals with a clove colour.

 

The same case with the third rock

What about this one, the brown colour maybe  a fusion crust, or due to weathering. and it strongly attracts magnet
