  1. Thank you all for taking the time to review the post and appreciate your simplified explanations I'll keep it aside, for a carving attempt in the future. There are alot of meteorite words that I am definitely not familiar with though dont hold back I'd rather you guys be honest. Cheers
  2. Hi I went hunting yesterday and found a stone that has some different characteristics. Looks like packed sand ,Its very lightly magnetic , like 2 thumbprints. Filing color like clay, has a sparkle,like flow lines,like weird circle on it or two, flat side I'm not an expert nor do I usually pick up rocks that dont have metal shine any help would be great identifying what type of rock it is Thank you Before filling I should take another 2 Mills to make it flat After filling Found in Sooke bc canada on the beach Thank you
  3. Your awesome Thank you for being positive about it and taking the time to view my posts Cheers
  4. Your gonna think I'm crazy but I thought it was a Martin lol my dream . Last pic has water on the rock All black,No streak,hard to diamond file, light gray to white slurry. The outside is full of Little Rock's the are all black Biggest one is quarter inch near the front scattered all over it gets smaller as you get to the back or smaller end of the rock,looks very aerodynamic ,magnetic, Nickel test was negative so I put it in the rock garden Cheers
  5. Yes it is helpful info. Trust me if you cut me, I,d bleed green. Yes I thought meteorites have magnetism Not just mainly magnetic. Ill start figuring the different shades and colors of shine I added 2 window pics of a rock that I dont think is a meteorite because the out side was to textured the nickel salutation was not reacting pink, This one has all the same black rocks but they all shine at different angles in the cut window and very sparkly Same rock with no shine angle I need lots learning still Thank you for all your help you guys are awesome.
  6. I will start doing more research to help make better judgment on when identifying oxidized Mineral in a stone I was only streak testing the window I made in the rock, yet when I streak tested the exterior of the rock it was very dark grey and black. At 1st I didn't think it was magnetite because when I put a needle on a string it would not pull it and if it did it was very small amount to a point where I was unsure if it was my shaking hands or the rock. As well as I didn't think was hematite because the streaks were Gray. Just the usual I made a rookie mistake:)
  7. Thank you all for your help I'll just put it in my rock garden and keep hunting Cheers
  8. Thank you window looks flat black and the grounds are metallic gray It almost looks glassy 1 pic with file grounds 2 pic with out On the one side has a chunk missing Yet it dosen't have any sharp edges Kind of glazed lo Its 8" long 5"wide 2" deep I am a newbie only a couple of years I think you might be right about it being an earth rock
  9. Hi Merry Christmas & happy new year I found this rock and would like some help identifying please. Slightly magnetic, nickle test , little colored, maybe rust Certain spots in the light it has a Silvery Found in Victoria Thank you 20200102_132948.mp4 20200102_132934.mp4
  10. Hi I'm definitely starting to notice that I am not good at identifying suspect meteorites and I should stick to Roofing instead of meteorite hunting but I do have another one that I would love to share and see if anyone has any idea of what it might be thank you for taking the time to observe my posts It's about 30 cm long 20 wide by 13 cm High triangular shape really heavy lightly magnetic shines of different types of metal Found by the ocean about 30 pounds The bottom side had a brownish weather in but the rest looks like it does not have a fusion crust but I'm not sure It has one hole 1 cm in diameter looking at it aerodynamically it would be in the tail end Thank you again
  11. Thank you It does show some tiny holes I could be wrong but it looks like it has two exterior layers that are deteriorating and the highest elevations in the rock are damaged ,a consistent metallic shyne to it. feels like a rock and not a stone. I did google pics of agatized breccia they definitely have some similarities
  12. Hi When I saw the round stones with the halos inside of a stone that was inside of a stone I thought it might be a meteorite Its not heavy ,magnetic, Exterior looks like it has 2 weathered layers, it's heavily damaged on the highest elevations, it has a rock feel to it not a stone I put water on the first and the second last pic Looked cool though I'd share it and name it (spaceface:) Just wondering if it is a space face any help would be great Thank you
