Meteoroid ID - Couldnt find anything like it anywhere


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I hope I'm posting this in the right section. Sorry if not.

 

I've had this one for years now. 

A friend of mine found three in a field in south west Germany. One I lost, the second one I gave to my nieces and this one, the largest, I kept.

I have asked many people already, including Geologists, people that spend a lot of time with crystals and I searched the internet. Found no answer of what this is or anything similar to this specific shape...

Please let me know if you have any insights or ideas.

 

Thank you!!

Totally cool rock. Totally not a meteorite.

Would like to know what it is.

what makes you think that it isn't one? the surface and colour matches that of the Sikhote-Alin meteorite for example - is it its shape, that makes you so sure?

Thanks everyone, for your replies. And yes, I have actually looked into all these things and more, still - my "rock" still seems to be very, very different in its specific shape from what you suggested- THAT's why I signed up here. I found nothing like it and the only thing that's close to its surface, color, etc... are some types of meteorites.

Will keep searching. Once again, Thank you!

A simple non-destructive X-ray fluorescence test would settle the matter; most environmental testing labs would be able to perform the test.
