Does anyone know what these rocks might be? some are slightly magnetic and some a little more. when I grinded into them they look real shiny like metal :idunno: I appreciate any info. they dont look like any pictures of slag

You really need to make the photo more blurry, and take a picture of the rocks on a black piece of construction paper if you want somebody to be able to give you an accurate identification. I'm stumped! :arrowheadsmiley:

I am going to go out on a very flimsy limb here, throw a wild guess at the wall and see if it sticks.

It's weathered magnetite :th:

They dont leave a mark on the streak test ,actually the brown one in the first photo, left a chalky brown streak.Does galena leave a mark.Its just that Everyone says "meteorites are magnetic "well magnetic rocks are easy too come by .I just wonder what they are.
