Hi all,

new to this forum, it certainly looks like a real mine of information.

My Son(8 years old) and I decided to join here and get some guidance on an odd rock that we dug up in our field.

We have no knowledge of geology - terrestrial or otherwise....

It is atypical of the rocks around us which are shale and granite.

It weighs 18lbs (8.3KG) and is 8in x 5in x 4in (22 x 14 x 13cm). It is magnetic and has oxidization across its stony surface.

I attach some pictures as a guide.

Any info appreciated. A definite NO THIS IS NOT a meteorite would be welcome if only to appease my sons questions!

Many thanks.
