Old find, meteorite?

Recommended Posts

Went looking for an old receipt and found these in an old box of uncleaned finds.  The brown on them is dirt, found in heavy iron oxidized soil.  Have not washed them.  One close up of the back of one, some iron where I may have hit the bottom off it, not sure though. 

I do not have a scale, will grab one, obviously they are heavy.  The magnet test picture is blurry because the rock was about to fall off the magnet.

Well, critique away and hope I can learn something.

Couple other pics, weighed them.  Not in water though,  don't want the water to wash off the dirt.

Well, none are meteorites. Looks like volcanic basalt.

Bummer, not really a region with volcanic anything on the surface.
