Unknown Speciman

Recommended Posts

Can anyone identify the attached speciman? It was found in a gravel parking lot in Kentucky. It is magnetic, and of course, sets off the metal detector when passed over it. It is different in texture from the meteroites I have found before because it is pitted rather than smooth.

Thanks for looking.

Hi John,

The stone in your photo is interesting, but not a meteorite. There is visible quartz or some other form of crysytalline silica showing. That makes it an earth rock of some kind. Keep looking.

Good Hunting, Ben
