Hi. Everyone .

This is probably Stony meteorite, I found it recently, it has distinct fusion crust and chondrules.

When looking for chondrules, this is a good example of what they look like. 
 

Good luck.

Bill,

I thought this is what they call fusion crust, has this terrestrial defied the rules? Or is in agreement with your meteoritic litany.

Meteorite fusion crust is normally smooth, black, and about as thick as your fingernail. It may have crazing surface cooling cracks that are less than one millimeter deep. Your boulder has nothing similar to meteoritical crust.

That is about as far away from fusion crust as a picture of my kitchen table.

Just like all Earth rocks that have a 1000's year old weathered surface.

This describes almost every terrestrial stone that has been exposed to weather for any appreciable amount of time.

Jimalito is back! 

We missed you man. How have you been? Found any good rocks lately?

Hi, wodu.

Yes, am here to stay Man!, And meteorite collecting is my hobby, whatever you would call it good rocks, or bad rocks, learning never stops here.

Besides, my name jimale can not be substituted for Jamal, which  is Arabic.

Further, jamalito sounds funny and has.a negative connotation.please be informed.

Today, have found this rock.

The "-ito" that he added to your name in Spanish means "little one", it's a term of endearment, but interesting to know that it has negative connotation in your language.  For example, my name in spanish is Miguel, but my friends might call me Miguelito.

Hey Jimale. I apologize. I wasn't trying to insult you. Where I am from we speak Spanish and English. That suffix is a term of endearment. It is used when you are familiar with someone.

Like Miguelito says, it means "little one". I could be "Betito". Or "Wodito" if you prefer. It is just how you greet someone you know and maybe haven't spoken to in a while... "Orale Chavalito! How they hangin' bro?"

I won't call you Jimalito any more now that I know it is disrespectful in your culture. I didn't mean to do that and I apologize Jimale.

That does not mean im not going to rake you over the hot coals for posting chunks of mud and old asphalt as meteorites. I'll still piss you off with my comments and will remain largely unrepentant for it. But I won't do it at the expense of your culture because that is not cool and I stand corrected.

Hey, Bob

Am not an arab, am proud to be a Somali anyway. Jamal means beauty, in Arabic,  and jimale is a name given to a Somali boy,  born On Friday. That is the difference.

Suffix -to- denotes Feminine and  immoral behavior for that case, this is not intended to hurt anyone , but explaining something here.

Thanks, guys for the beautiful explanation.

Raffling feathers accepted, and my boulders, igneous......

Iska warran or mambo, Jamale!

I have been running an interpretation business www.400languages.com for 28 years now where I use Somali and Swahili interpreters nearly every day. I use other Bantu languages like; Maay maay, Rundi and neighboring country languages like; Juba-Arabic, Dinka, Maadi, Amharic, Tigrinyan, Afar and about 75 other African languages. We interpret onsite for local African background people in the Phoenix, Arizona area for medical clinics and the courts. We also interpret over the phone and by video conference.

"Jamalito" is a positive nickname to me here, but culturally no one wants to offend anyone because of the female case ending. I'm still going to order meteorite supplies from my favourite supplier, Jamalito Enterprises, though.

It is good having you back on the meteorite forum. 

Kwaheri,

billpeters
