Thanks Bill! Can you elaborate on why this is a terrestrial stone and cannot be a meteorite? Your answer tells me it's not a meteorite because it's magnetic. Please be patient but if you have anything more to add I would love to learn more to prevent another similar mistake. 😊😊

Looks like "ironstone", no fusion crust evident, no structure or features to indicate it's a meteorite.
