Hi there,

I have acquired at a garage sale a non ferrous rock. It is super heavy and I have no idea of what it could be . Any idea?

Thanks a lot!

Have you done a streak test on it? Just a wild guess....Hematite.

Or perhaps pyrolusite. Do a streak test and let us know the results.

What a cool rock!

Just by looking at it I would say hematite too. 

Im anxious to see a streak and a window. I bet it streaks in red hues and is sub metallic.

I have seen tin that looks a lot like that. But not such a red rind.
