Hi All!! New guy here with a meteorite...... maybe...

Recommended Posts

They all appear terrestrial to me, nothing about them looks meteorite.

There's no quick way to determine specific gravity, that's why us regular folk use bulk density.

1) record mass1 of specimen in grams

2) place small container of water on scale, zero out scale

3) tie thread around specimen, lower into water so it is completely submerged but not touching the sides or bottom of the container; record mass2 in grams

4) bulk density = mass1/mass2

5) remember this test is not a conclusive yes/no, just another tool in the identification belt

Keep at it, happy hunting!
