Weird little piece


Recommended Posts

Certainly NOT a meteorite,

The old gas bubbling appearance eliminates any possibility of space debris. It looks like the many small, dense black cynder-like rocks I find.

It is a definite leaverite.

I have seen nuggets that look like that and are coated with manganese ... Try soaking it in nitric acid...Cheers, Unc

could it be a button of gold from a miners frying pan?

What is it's hardness? Does a copper penny scratch it? Can you scratch your finger nail with it? Does it scratch on the bottom ring of a coffee cup? Color of Streak?
