  1. I actually got the results back from the oxygen isotope test on one of these rocks last month, it is the same reading as Earth. That still does not rule out that Venus used to be like Earth so I am now waiting for the world to turn back on to get the mineral test.
  2. My only guess is that it was placed where I found it and a seed was somehow implanted so when I rinsed it with tap water, it caused it to sprout in two days? I did not notice the sprout at first. A seed could have flown and landed in the hole too. I didn't notice how I picked it up because it honestly looked like a misplaced piece of slag to me upon discovering it. You can't tell by photo, but the leaves also have hairs on them, more than I have ever seen in a plant, and I have seen some fuzzy plants. The hole is also perfectly in line with the flow lines. 👀
  3. It appears to have a brownish fusion crust. It is slightly magnetic. It has glypt features. Lips that crest. It appears greenish and brown to bluish black, vesicular, stony, and brecciated. One crazy thing about it, is that it has a natural hole unlike any stony meteorite I have seen. As you will see, the hole is jagged, indicating that it is a rocky matrix and not slag? The hole shouldn't be there, it is basically impossible? A two way bubble? It is in essence a chain of vugs that look like they were acted upon by the same direction of airflow. The next particularly interesting thing about this rock specimen is that it appears to have a small green plant bud growing out of a deep hole. Perhaps an ancient seedling that was miraculously saved on the interior? This was a surface find, it appears there is no dirt in the holes, besides a little material build-up stuck to the walls. I think it could be alien or pre terrestrial matter from our or some other universe. As you can see this rock is mysterious, the ones I found before with plant matter on them are missing. I guess the only real question, is how the seed got in there if it is slag? Does the hole prove it was air that broke through? I showed pictures of every side, the hole, and the budding seedling from the hole. Aliens?
  4. The fusion crust becomes granular in appearance after some time? Am I right?
  5. No ha ha ha , I think that rule is true but on rare occasion a spalled edge will pick up something crust-like, however the surface of the find looks granular, like a slightly weathered iron to me.
  6. That's the plan, I was going to re-ignite the Venus thread if I get the isotope data soon, at most. And the worker said he was cleaning some parts of the machine and there were insidious mass spectrometer problems.
  7. I am going to have to learn the hard way with my test I can barely afford soon to see if I am crazy with one, if I am I will admit it on here I was delusional. I don't think these are meteorites, they are just shaped like them, I learned the hard way what chert is for sure. Meteorites changed my life to get into, it really is one of the more fascinating science subjects.
  8. I believe people on here or if it's a meteorite or not. The fact is we can argue for a very long time to the point we need machines. These are the people with a bias against me, they care more about it than I do somehow. Yet I haven't gotten one response even barely close to the detail I brought up. I am more than perfectly happy with my life with or without meteorites. That needs to get in people's heads. Maybe it looks like I need a meteorite, but I don't. Maybe people think it looks more like a meteorite than I do? Enough to make them think that perhaps I am ignoring what people say? As far as I know none of these are meteorites. If they were, they wouldn't show up on the map, so that is also an issue.
  9. It is funny isn't it? How could I find so many rocks where the decision of what they are is moot.
  10. There appears to be roots that have tried to take over the cracks and whatever else cement gets grown into from they are hard to remove, they break easily. It was slightly buried, the grass around it must have found nutrients in its crust I dont know. I uploaded a video so you could see the structure and what appears to be a brown crust on it as well on one side. The photo shows the root growth on the top. 20200217_134819.mp4
  11. Thanks for the info. I saw something about it but it was from 1908. This was not found far from a road so it's probably ironized concrete. It does appear to have clasts that are more magnetic than the rest of the matrix. I have to examine the rest of the piece that this broke off of.
  12. I should say it is copper-gold. It is iridescent gold, it kind of reflects rainbows at certain angles but it reflects gold for sure. It is brecciated and has spalling features. It fits thumbprints like classic regmaglypts. It could be waste but rare because the gold it to one side. It has cavities with lipless cavities inside of those like it was forced inward while expanding. It has a crust all over. It couldnt have all these characteristics and not be worth further investigation atleast. Thanks, I didn't know about refractory waste, it is one of the things it could be.
  13. I could not find anything about it online. This is slightly magnetic. I don't know if I was getting an accurate density reading because it obviously has vesicles but it was 2.3. This was also found isolated. I think it's a piece of gold slag or a planetary meteorite of unknown origin. Would they leave gold on there like this? The video shows how it is metallic. If I grind an edge it is has silver spots. I was glad I found this because it is golden and fits more of the lines of this forum from what I usually post. If anyone knows, it's you guys. Can slag look like gold? It also appears to have glypts. Thanks. 20200216_075203.mp4
  14. Here is a piece of concrete that holds magnets everywhere. Sorry if you have a problem I know it's not concrete, too bad. Name one thing it could be?
