possible meteorite?


Recommended Posts

Hi gentlemen,

What is the rock in the picture? Does it remotely resemble a meteorite?

It is attracted to a magnet.

Any ideas are welcome. I'd like to pick your brains on this one.

I found it in 2009.

Thank you for any suggestions ie your :twocents:

Here it is, two views of it:

My suggestion is to perform the necessary tests.

All we know now is it's magnetic. That's only the first test. Perform the others and you will answer your own question!

I have documents and videos on my web site that can help you. http://desertsunburn.no-ip.org

Cheers!

Thanks for the reply and link Jim, but is it possible albeit partially to judge by physical characteristics. Could regmaglypts, lipping and broken tips be deceptive signs that a rock is a meteorite but in actual fact it is a meteowrong? This may be a lame question but one that I can't help asking from anyone that loves meteorites! Please forgive the wishful thinking on my part. :rolleyes: Maybe you felt that way too before!
