iron rock

Recommended Posts

Found a rock that is attracted to a magnet and don't want to jump to conclusions...what other types of rocks are attracted to magnets besides magnetite and hematite? It was a piece of river rock in my backyard. It has signs of a black fusion crust and when I filed off the edge, it has an inner metallic appearance. My metal detector clearly signals that it is iron. I have done some research on meteorites and meteorwrongs, but I just can't peg what this rock is. I can't really use surface features to help determine its identity due to erosion. I did a streak test and no red streak, either it leaves no streak at all or a black streak. I don't have pictures at this time but will post in the future... Ideas???? Thanks
