Help with Identification

Recommended Posts

Hello Andrew!

There are two stones in the photos. How do they relate to each other?

Neither look like a meteorite. But if you have a magnetic rock that truly leaves no streak then you have an oddity for sure.

Let's see that "metal" under a magnifying lens or a close up photo. Polish up a surface with fine sandpaper and look closely at the metal. Is it really metal?

Take a small swab and dampen a polished surface with weak acid. Wait a few hours. See if it rusts.

Streak it again. Use a ceramic sanding belt. Rub it hard and get some powder worked up. Make sure your streak test is valid.

Good luck! Post the results!
