day near lsd... meteorite?

Recommended Posts

I found a very small what look to be a meteorite.... it"s about a 1/4 in square... in the bottom of a crack on exposed bedrock. The "meteorite" was about 4in down and i had to break the surrounding rock with my pick I thought for sure it was gold. It overloaded my 3000 at about 2 in away. I don't know for sure if it is a meteorite but maybe someone else would... getting verification with pictures isn't the best. Yes, it is magnetic and weighs 1.18g.

I also found that bead and baby nugget the same day so if the meteorite is just a rock or piece of iron I didn't get skunked either way. the nugget weighs.....a whole .08g.

Thanks

There are meteorites in the area and both specimens of Trilby Wash and Wickenburg (both chondrites) can be found there. Yes the pics are not very helpful, but you could bring it by the shop and let me look at it.
