  1. First one is full of vesicles and appears to be either slag or terrestrial volcanic. Second one looks like slag.
  2. Given the almost uniform thickness and ~90* angles for the near vertical sides, it may be an old piece of scrap iron. It is interesting looking, though. Sand that grind spot smooth and try etching it and see if you get a W. pattern.
  3. Why is every piece of slag from Mars?
  4. 0 since they started monitoring the atmosphere for atomic bomb testing.
  5. There has not been a tektite forming impact in thousands of years, it is unlikely you are finding tektites. Glass is formed by melting, meteorites do not melt. Meteorites do not last millions of years on Earth. The hardiest irons can last thousands, but chondrites terrestrialize much more quickly.
  6. That doesn't look like a meteorite to me, and the website the pict is from isn't exactly the metbul. There's no information on that page provided for that photo other than their claim that it's "a meteorite"; I don't think it is. Their "picture" of a "meteor shower" is computer generated. They have another pict further down that page stating "a meteorite" that I also doubt (little round black one). And below that they show an iron meteorite with the caption "Regmaglypts Visible on an Iron Meteorite", except that it's a piece of shrapnel and there are no regmaglypts present. Just because it's a webpage doesn't mean it's good or accurate information.
  7. There's a hot meteorwrong that is very common to Franconia, it sets off the detector and sticks to your magnet and has the right coloring, but upon examination you discover that it isn't a meteorite. Maybe you found one of those? I think I have a picture, let me look for it. Edit: here's a pict
  8. Absolutely nothing to indicate a meteorite there.
  9. Wow, what a journey that thing had from space to the museum it reside in. I have a small cast replica on my work desk.
  10. It does not have regmaglypts, nor does it have fusion crust. It's "iron stone", some sort of metamorphic terrestrial rock. Not sure what conversation there is to be made, you asked for opinions, which were all unanimous, and then you refused to accept what anyone said; that is not a discussion.
