is this a rock or a meteorite?


Recommended Posts

Is it magnetic? I don't know much about them, but I don't think it is. It looks more like some type of volcanic rock. Someone on here will know or will know how you can find out.

insurgentsa,

There is also another possibility that what you have is Blast Furnace Slag, What Fred mentioned would fit into this catagory.

Notice the reddish surface tinge on your specimen and also the surface glaze.
