One more new one for today


Recommended Posts

This one hast been windowed, but cracked open.  I found this in the same field different area.  I thought it was just a pudding stone, until I cracked it open.  Pudding stones I get in the thumb are usually always white inside, this one was black when I started hitting it.  It also spit a few sparks every few swings.  The interior is magnetic and magnetism varies between the different shapes. It has a shell that's about as thin as an eggshell

Neither the matrix interior nor exterior have any resemblance to a meteorite. Try the geology forum.

NWA 4485 is a fine example of a meteorite whose interior matrix and crust does not match yours. You should be able to find numerous examples of terrestrial stones that have matrices similar to yours, but also dissimilar to NWA 4485 and the interiors of meteorites of similar classification.

Once again we see a magnetic stone with obvious terrestrial iron. Even if a person does not have the experience to see this stone is not a meteorite a simple streak test will tell them what they need to know.

 

Streak test was colorless, I wouldn't have posted here if I didn't do the simple tests.  This is broken, not cut with my diamond blade, so yeah it looks dull.  Not a meteorite though, thanks again
