     Found his outside my storage unit laying on the concrete in south Texas. I noticed it was attracted to my magnet stick then I decided To cut a piece off the corner to see what was inside the rock - sorry it’s not a clean smooth cut . I did some research online and saw meteorites visually similar to the rock I have Especially "CARBONACEOUS CHONDRITE" meteorites. if someone here can give me there expertise based on the pictures I posted on wether this rock is a space rock are not I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

    Looks to me like a piece of Babbitt material from an over pour of a main bearing.  You would have to give more statistics to determine more about it.  Weight, is it mailable, has it been cleaned, etc.  Looks very interesting to say the least.

    Ironically I found this rock outside my home in the dirt with other rocks.

  4. Hi everyone! 

    I found a interesting rock with metallic luster here at home in Texas. I think it might be a mIneral rock but I have know clue as to what type of mineral. I am new to the forum and not very educated when it comes to rocks and mineral types.  Thankfully we have sites like this one for rookies like me that don’t have a clue about rocks and fossils. I have posted pics of the rock and would love to know what everyone else thinks about what mineral type it could be, thanks y’all!
