Meteorite? Could this be fusion crust?


Recommended Posts

No. Looks like hematite with the reddish tinge to it.

Do a steak test using the underside of a porcelain toilet lid.

My guess is it will be reddish brown

Hemmite for sure! Thanks. I'm guessing this may by an Indian artifact. It's overall shape looks like some form of weapon and/or axe head. Any suggestions on how to maybe restore this? Plz forgive my ignorance, I'm a total newbie. I found this behind my house in Yavapia county Arizona.

I honestly don't believe it was an indian artifact. There's a lot of things that might look like something but in fact are completely natural, imho.
