Is this a meteorite rock?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


A friend of mine found this rock in Morocco, near Errachidia, in the Sahara, I know nothing about meteorites so is this even a meteorite?

The first image shows a magnet.


Thanks for your help

Can you file a window and show us the interior?

In focus photos would be a plus, outside in natural sunlight is the best lighting.

Thanks for your help both of you, I will take another photo, this will take a couple of days since I don't have the rock with me.


Welcome to the forum!

Just to be clear, you do understand what Mike is asking when he asked you to file a window?

If not, what he asking you to do is to use a metal file, a knife sharping stone, a piece of sand paper on a block of wood or all of these on a small area, about 10mm square sand or file a portion of the stone, try and make it as smooth as possible so we can see what the inside of it looks like, this is very inportant to help possibly identify it as a meteorite, doing will not decrease any possible value if it is a meteorite.
