Possible find


Recommended Posts

Hello

These two rocks were found on the Island of Malloca (Balearic Islands).

The first one is about the size of my thumb. Comparing it with pictures of other meteorites i have not found anything that seems to match. The thing that i find strange is there are quite a few pyramid shaped spikes on it. It is also not magnetic.

I will look into the other tests that can be made.

Thanks

David

The second one is also the size of a thumb and is broken in half in the middle. It looks like a molten piece of metal but it is not metal, the only part that has metal is where the magnet is stuck to. There also seems to be a brown coating on it and in some parts it seems to shine like copper. I have filed the bit that is broken but it is difficult to see the surface.
