Is this a meteorite?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm from Venezuela and like 6 years ago someone gave me a stone that looks like a meteorite. I don't think its one but i would like you to respond me with your opinions. In one of the pictures you'll see that the stone has some kind of bubble i think it's a meteorite characteristic. It is very heave and the surface is a lot irregular, also it has a golden tone, but very mild. Sorry for my english.post-25475-0-02905700-1307367520_thumb.jpost-25475-0-46823100-1307367804_thumb.jpost-25475-0-81070400-1307367940_thumb.j

Those would be some mighty big chondules...my guess is some interesting mineralized stone...But, look through the past posts and do some at home tests...filing down an edge and checking for nickel inclusions and check with a magnet would be a priority...
