As far a meteorite goes not saying I thought it was but immediately in the field I could discard because of no noticeable regmaglypts amoung other characteristics but that easiest to notice in field

Might be galena. Hard to tell from the photos. It does look like some I found at the Black Rock Mine not far from Yuma.

If it's galena it will have a dark gray streak.

...And will bead up , molten, when hit with a torch.  Try to break off a small piece for roasting, outside, with good ventilation.

And, of course, it will feel heavier/denser than rocks of similar size.
