Found at bottom of unusual hole


Recommended Posts

Came upon a rather large 12ft Dia x 3ft deep hole in the middle of a state park/forest in SE Wisconsin ....no other holes anywhere around. Could be a sink hole or some human making from long-long ago but thinking about possible impact site. I decided to check it out and found a 20lb rock 3.4 density at the bottom. Attracted to a magnet and has what looks like heavily weathered fusion or at least remnants of....curious if this could be fusion crust or just chemical weathering on a terrestrial rock.....I include picture of the hole for what it's worth

There's some exceptionally hot rocks exactly like that up around Rich Hill ... somewhat magnetic and really makes a detector sing! ... Granite boulders... Cheers, Unc

Thanks....the 3.4 density did not fit any of rocks on chart except peridotite....what is the black shiny layer on parts of rock? Weathering?

Yup, some kind of weathering no doubt.
