I started a new topic because this one has flight marks.

Recommended Posts

I don't know what I am going to do, I have the rocks but I am having a hard time getting them confirmed. I thought I would post this one to see what other people think if I am crazy or not. This has wings on it that show it was a flying mass. I am just trying to verify my first meteorite with other people.

Sure, it looks like slag, but doesn't it resemble a meteorite?

This is the most radical and beautiful meteorite piece on the planet.

You certainly know enough to hit the nail on the head with this one. It is obviously oxidized metals and silica flux. Nothing but another  hunk of refractory waste.

I just need the chemical data I guess this is going to be fun.

Explain the lips all meeting each other, this was affected by air, that tells me it was not made on accident as slag.

Kissing?

If the lips are telling you this hunk of oxide is a meteorite the lips are lying to you.

It is obviously slag and you obviously have no clue how to identify a meteorite. 

Why don't you spend an hour or two learning the basics? If you had a simple understanding of the subject you would not be fooled by common pieces of refractory waste.

Why don't you do the basic field test? Do you even know what that is?

I forgot the basic field test but this looks like a flying rock, no more, no less.

I am sure that your chemical testing will prove it looks like a flying rock. No more and no less.

Sorry Will 

nothing more than slag. Keep looking never give up and you will find a meteorite!

This was also explosive when a lighter was applied to heat it up. I thought explosive qualities was the marker of a meteorite? Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought I read that somewhere. Besides, I have a much larger main mass with the same qualities that is too clunky to be a piece of slag.

Sometimes they use meteorites instead of TNT when blasting. It's less expensive.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Sounds like you just got them confirmed....

Not a meteorite. The combined knowledge here is unparalleled. If you want to insult people and refute facts, move to Washington DC.

I am just reporting findings, that clash with the slag hypothesis, this was a strewn field.

The findings you report indicate it is a hunk of slag. Nothing you report has indicated otherwise.

Why don't you spend some time learning basic identification?  Why continue to be fooled by common rocks? If you just learned the simple field tests that every meteorite hunter does it would be a step in the right direction.

If you want to be a meteorite hunter you must start somewhere. Why not start by learning the basic field tests to identify one?

It has a clear hole straight through it too that tells me it was affected by wind.

I am not sure its slag.  I thought it was volcanic basalt.  Looks like a lot of the rock on my claim from the section the geological maps label as basalt.  Only difference is the ones I find don't have wings.
