I found this a while back I have tried to research it but can't find anything that is even close to it the small piece is what I cut off so I could send it somewhere to get it analyzed

You might be able to bring it to a pawn shop and get an XRF analysis.  Sometimes for a fee.

I can only recommend testing with a magnet.

EDIT: You could try a specific gravity test.

Metals aren't often found in the pure form and could be an alloy, so the specific gravity can be looked up on charts likethis:

Pure aluminum would be 2.70, but highly unlikely it'd be pure.

It's about the size of a cracker and 1/2 in thick but weights 4.4oz

It looks interesting but I can't say for sure if it's a meteorite or not. You should probably send it out to a meteorite testing lab.

It has a thick smooth crust that almost flakes off its very soft to the touch
