Mars?

Recommended Posts

Hello! Help me find out what kind of stone it is? Where we found it, 47 years ago saw the fall of the meteor. The stone was found at a depth of 25-30 cm in the forest, it was destroyed in part. The stone reacts poorly to the magnet.

Ваша скала имеет земные кристаллы, осажденные в воде минеральные жилы, выветренную поверхность в отличие от стандартной корки и грубую, блочную форму. Он не имеет характеристик метеорита. Продолжайте смотреть вниз. Они там.

"But what could it be? How do you define?"

"Your rock has earth crystals, the mineral veins in the water, the winding surface as opposed to standard crust and crude, block uniforms. It has no meteor characteristics. Keep looking down. Are they there."

AKA:
Your rock has terrestrial crystals, water deposited mineral veins, a weathered surface unlike standard crust, and a rough, blocky shape.  It has no characteristics of a meteorite. Keep looking down. They are out there.

Hello! Thanks for the expanded answer. Yes, unfortunately, he probably fell down without documents! And his possible meteoritic characteristics, he could easily lose for 47 years being in an aggressive environment, it was found not in the desert. And the crystals that you consider earthly can easily be Martian! Thank you!

Vladimir,

The rock that you posted is clearly not a meteorite.

The stone lay in the ground for many years, water and frost made it possible to split through a crack, that's what color it is.

Vlad,

It has zero visual characteristics of a meteorite. What properties does it have that makes you think it is a meteorite? Please take it to a lab which analyzes meteorites for independent analysis. Spend time visiting large meteorite collections at museums and research meteor-wrongs on the net to learn more. 

До свидания!

I will try to explain the reasons why I think that it is not terrestrial. According to an eyewitness, in the fall of 1969, he observed the fall of a green meteorite, early in the morning, the direction of the fall was from the southwest to the northeast, he heard his hiss, but to the ground he did not reach the burning, which we determined along the trajectory, we accidentally found this stone. He was in the forest, at a depth of 25-30 cm, we do not see such stones at all, the stone reacts to the magnet (weakly), when it was collected, it turned out to be a pyramid. The stone belongs to a rare earth rock (An analysis of the Martian rock found the curiosity of the rover and is called "Jake Matizhevik" (or "Jake M"), after the NASA's engineer, determined that the Martian rock was very similar to the terrestrial mugearite.)such stones and even similar we do not have in general, and this is easier to find the Martian origin than the earth. (Bryansk region), there is no quartz in the stone. You are right, analysis is required, there is no other way. Thank you!

There is no quartz in this stone.

Together with the stone there were small pieces of pumice stone, in which were parts of this stone. Still found a molten droplet, which is magnetic, like metal.

Do you know how to do a streak test on a specimen, often language barriers are difficult, but this is a good test. Looks to be very similar to Magnetite wich when scratched on un-glazed porcelain will leave a black or deep grey streak.
