Is this a meteorite ??

Recommended Posts

Hello megan and welcome to the forum, photos are very hard to tell from with any real accuracy. From what I see I will guess what you have is a sample of Hematite or Magnetite and you can try making a streak with it like with a marker on a piece of unglazed porcelain. Even the under side of the toilet lid or the bottom of a coffee cup will work.

A grey/black streak means Magnetite

A brick/rust color means Hematite

A meteorite will not leave a streak unless there is some desert varnish on the outside in most cases.

You said magnetic so I will guess gray/black streak

BUT... I am only looking at a picture and giving it my best shot...
