  1. Hi

    Yes

     You mean one in a million chance I'll take it.

     Cracked a little bit were the 2 big rocks are fused to it

     I have to admit I googled the word glypts 

     Yes I agree it definitely looks heavy winded on one side.

     After looking at it a little bit more it does have expansion and contraction marks .

       It definitely is not cracked and it looks like That it has a few damages some might be older than the other.

     But here is my favorite it looks like that it was shot with 2   1"by 1.5 "  egg shaped rocks they are a different color then the main body the 1st one turn into a rectangle after the 2nd  rock hit. it flew for a little bit as it covered 5% of the new rocks with its stealthy look before it got hit again  As it looks like the deferent rocks covering  , I think  A lot of this rock is made  of these 1"rocks  just these 2 are the freshest and haven't had the time to get covered like the rest of it with a stealthy  layer. beautiful scenery even if its terrestrial 

     You probably think I'm crazy 

     Well you're probably right and it's amazing what your mind can make you think sometimes and believe after observing something for so long

    Lol

     Here are a few more pics

     Thank you for taking the time to observe my post

  2. 8 hours ago, WillM said:

    Most meteorites are 3.0 density+ because of the heavy metal.This does not appear meteoric to me. That bring said there is another type of meteorite called a planetary meteorite. Does it have holes where gas escaped? It appears to be man made but it could be planetary. 

      I would like to learn more about the differences between meteorite  gas vapor ventilation lines and terrestrial rocks vapor ventilation lines if there is such thing. 

    Cheers.


  3. Hi

     Thank you all  for taking the time to view my post.

     I had a chance after work to take a look with a magnifying glass and trying to see if I can get better pictures, I will put it in the rock garden,

     It had stuff that looked like flow lines and thump prints inside of it I wanted to see how much it would take to break , medium pressure and it split in half and it does have  holes  

     I do have a few more to share so I'll put this one away but here are the last few pictures I took

     I really have to watch my spelling lol. 

    opposit not option of other pic

    Thank you

  4. It is not that it has holes i think it absorbs water just like mud and it contains it for hours

    I can file it with my finger tip if I do it hard it knocks the stones out , it really looks like  Deteriorated gypsum ,

    The out side is alot more solid

    I thought it might be man made with a rust layers on it

     

    The thumbprints got me 

    Thank you for the feed back

     


  5. Hi

     This one had some interesting characteristics I thought to share in  hopes of identifying. 

     Don't be shy tell me to throw it in the rock garden.

     I appreciate you  taking the time to observe the photos look at details and feed back.  

     I scrubbed it with a wire brush about 6 months ago thinking that it was a piece of slag.

     

    Attracts cheep Magnet

    Rest of info in pic20200126_191154.jpg

  6. Hi

    Is it possible for a meteorite to be so soft that it is easily filled with no effort or packed with sand like granules.

    No streak test  appears fragile 

    Magnetic 

    1.9 to 2.1 dinsty , small hard to measure 

     Very porous

     It has groups of granules that do not change color in water.

    Looks like fusion crust

    Looks like flow lines 

    Looks thumbprints x4 visible ones

    Found in free fill that was delivered to help grade the property we moved to recently.

    It has rusted pits. 

    Window  was cut through on of the 1 cm pits

    Dinsty 4.1

    M400 grams,v96ml or close to 

    Any help would be great

  9. Hi

    Please let me know if I'm over posting 

    and I would love to learn how to delete old posts.

    Going through my rocks around the house that I collected. 

    Slightly magnetic 

    Has a circular shape on one side, thought it was a thumbprints.

    There are other circular shapes in the rock that are not like thump prints

     Damaged area shows what might look fusion crust.

    Super sparkly. 

    I think this one is from the beach looks washed.

    Filling exterior slurry was milky gray 

    Filling damaged area ripped my sand paper.

    One pic shows rock wet

     

    Thank you

  10. Hi

    I found this rock on the beach

     help identifying would be great

     

    It was hard to cut a window with a grinder 

    Covered with a brown rock material on the out side and black stone inside

    Looks like made of layers 

     I thought it might be Jasper I'm sure im wrong

    This pic with flash on

  11. 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

     

     

     


  12. 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 

    20200111_191331.jpg

    I should take another 2 Mills to make it flat

    After filling 

    20200111_175430.jpg

    Found in Sooke bc canada on the beach 

    Thank you

  14.  

    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

    20200104_185008.jpg

    Same rock with no shine angle

    20200104_180055.jpg

    I need lots learning still

    Thank you for all your help you guys are awesome.

  15.  

    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:)


  16. 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
