What is it then?

It atrakts a magnet slightle and it´s some kind of metal or iron.

The magnet is neodenium magnet and it´s size is 10 mm thik and 15 mm in hight.

The coin 20mm.

I found them in south Denmark on a beach Between Præstø and Kalvehave and some of them i found on Møn north beach.

explanation on those letters that we pay 25% extra in taxes then in the rest of the world.

Ø=oe

Æ=ae

Å=aa

This info you will need if you want to search for the cyties.

It´s Sealand=Sjæland and not fyn or Jyland or for that matter not Bornholm either.

So want to look at Sjæland.

I have pics of three other rocks.

Your rocks look like forms of basalt and other igneous rocks. The one that has green crystals I would bet is Olivine Basalt. Basalt can sometimes be highly magnetic depending on is composition. Meteorites would probably have a short life on a beach due to the high moisture and salt. Keep hunting and your bound to find one sooner of later.

Below is a picture of Olivine Basalt so you can compare to your rock.

Hi Mikael, I agree that these are not meteorites. Many terrestrial rocks attract a magnet. Basalt and magnetite are the most common and they look like your specimens. If you do a density test and test for nickel, you will find that they are not meteorites. But don't stop looking.

Hej.

found out that it is terestriel. It is a conbination between theise irons.

ferrihydrit is red-brawn, goethit is yellow-brawn, lepidocrocit is orenge and siderit wich is an ironcarbonat.

Mangan is present in theise objects. Usuely there is 10% mangan present and some of them contain more mangan then iron and can be recednizes be it´s dark and gray-black colour but if there is more iron it chenges to a colour that is red-brawn and can contain sand, clay-minerals, svovl (Nr15 ind the periodesystem it could be brown) and fosfor. I do not now if the four last chenges the colour. In Danish it´s okker

I am not pulling your leg. We learn English from third grayd in school.

It´s 13 hours in a airplain crosing The Atlantic Ocean.

Enyway thank´s

Hi Mikael,

Thank you for posting your finds on the forum, It is good to have members from Europe. It seems to me that you have studied the minerology of these stones and really applied yourself. That will come in handy with the next batch of possible meteorites that you find. If you are persistant, you will be successful in your hunting. Please ask any questions that you may have, as there are many experienced meteorite hunters here on this forum that will be glad to help. All of us have found our share of meteor-wrongs when starting out, and I still pick up and save anything that falls into the "maybe" class just in case. We are flattered that you would choose our forum to post on, as most of us are far from Denmark. Welcome to the forum.

Good Hunting, Ben

Hej.

would faint red stripes or circuler red stripes give an indikation? And if meteorites have a short life span i water and salt then there would be faint red stripes or circles? All dependig on wich kind of meteorites it is. A stone iron would be a good guess thoe the iron can be arenged in other pattersn to.

If they have been lieing there for a year or two would the salt water penetrait into the core or midle of the meteorite?

Or would it be possible that some of the iron still has its shine silver colour?

Hej Jim.

The Nikkel test works fine and i have some positives.

I have some more testing to do.

Thank you Jim for the links. I was doubt if it was vinegar acid or reguler vinegar. I fund aut that i was the reguler one.

Thank you everyone.

Mikael

I have compared it and i am still possitive there is some yellowish around the ¨chondrul¨ and the pic. of the rock you posted it´s completle green and i have to take the factor of water and sand slowly (...) it round.
