small but I think it's meteorite

Recommended Posts


There is something round in photo #4 that could be a chondrule, but it is only speculation

until you file or grind a "window" into a corner of the stone, so that we may see a FRESH

look at the interior, and not a surface that is weathered, and oxidized.

Looks noting like a meteorite. The vesticles (holes) in the final photo clinch it. The matrix is typical terrestrial and unlike meteorite matrices. It looks like there are quartz crystals present. The apparent iron rust is extremely common in terrestrial stones and nothing like meteorite ferrous rust deposits. There is no apparent crust typical of meteorites.

Pitch it.
