Brown stone meteorite ?


Recommended Posts

Hello I'm new on this forum. 

I found this stone on a fleamarket in the east of Belgium . 

It measures 3,5x2,5x2,5 cm  Weight is 14 gr.

Some parts of the stone are a bit reddish transperant .

Ofcourse I looked for simular stones , but I couldn't find .

Thank you all for your reply !

Here's the second stone of the three that I found on the fleamarket in Belgium.

Weigt 22gr. ,  measures  3,5 x 2,5 x 1,5 cm high : shape looks more as a meteorite... but maybe the same type of stone as the first I posted here before ?

Benten,

Filing a window means to rub a part/edge of the stone or meteorite with a metal file and or a knife sharpening stone to reveal the interior of the specimen so the inside makeup of it is exposed for viewing.

Make sure to get a very good and focused photo of the "window" area for us to view after doing so.

If this is a meteorite filing a window will not affect it's value.

Mikestang , I 'm Dutch ... and  don't understand the words :  file a window please. I tried to find it in online-translation, without succes .  Please  can you say it in other words .

Cut or sand away a portion of the stone to reveal it's interior, such as the below photo.
