The only way it fell from the sky is if someone you did not see threw it in your direction and it happened to land in front of you. That stone has been rounded out the way it is in one of only 3 ways stones can be rounded. Weathered from wind and/or water, or it was done synthetically using a tumbler.

Stones don't just form as symmetrical ovals or spheres. It takes weathering/erosion or mechanical means. Either way, I know by your replies you are 100% in full knowledge of where this came from, and it wasn't from the sky. I am guessing it came out of your mineral collection. It is a nice stone though.

There are ways to check radioactivity. One is florescence and another is if it stays warm. Does not look like any of the radioactive ores though.

Looks like a tektite.





Here is some info about them.

hehe, some of the other images they had looked like turds. The colors dont match though.

Make sure to test its radioactivity, magnetism, biology, etc for your own safety and that of others.

Dude, good luck sleeping. I would be up all night making sure it didn't crack open and some horrible creature crawled out.

I vote for meteorite too, It sure looks like one. If this was the sixties, I would say a kid with a slingshot. There are millions of meteorites on this planet, lots of little ones survive. Seeing it happen is kind of cool.

Don't be silly, that is way too small for a dragon egg.

OP: Im a mine Engineer. I have a bunch of Geo's at my bidding.
Surprisingly there are none available at this second - All in an exploration meeting - But as soon as its over i can have my buddy look at your pics. Hes worked in every corner of this planet. Has a PhD in geology and has practised for 30 years.
If your interested in hearing his opinion:
Is it possible to take a couple more real close ups of the rock and email them to me? If available even with the use of a magnifying glass to see the grain size?


There is no absolute visual analysis that can determine if it is a meteorite. It takes a SEM and a Gas Chromatograph. The latter is destructive, so a little piece becomes even more tiny. The test costs $25 - $50.

They never fall hot, unless at cosmic velocity, in which there would be a crater. Even very large falls, break up into hundreds of pieces that fall at terminal velocity. This one is probably a meteorite because it looks like a fusion crust on an individual piece that broke apart at very high altitude and continued to ablate and is also slightly magnetic.

Even pieces a few hundred kg. will be so cold to the touch , that they will burn your skin from frostbite (internally, they are close to the temperature of cold space, and the short fiery flight is not enough to penetrate internally).

The OP should check for more in the area, also consult fireball reports in the area at the time, if available, and get it tested if they ever want a definitive answer. A tested and certified meteorite is where the money is.

If webs start spewing from your hands and you start climbing the walls let us know,other that i don't really know what to say.

$10,000 an ounce? Nope. Unless it is a very rare form of meteorite.

Is it magnetic that's the first test. Though a neat looking rock id have to say it's probably not. And I'd go with the bird idea. But start with the magnet and see if it contains iron.

If it breaks open and glowing blue stuff comes out, don't get any of it on you, it's meteor #.

Yah, bits of broken up meteor cracked and fuzed by the heat of ablation during reentry don't appear weathered and smooth like that. It could be a meteorite that was tumbled naturally in a stream bed, the ferrous qualities and the greenish component could be olivine, a gem quality mineral sometimes occurring in meteorites.

Why is it flat on one side...

Looks like something that was made from something like wielding slag...

I guess. How did they verify that, again?

Martian Spider egg! Humans still carry the fear from the last egg shower. They thought they were pretty too and took them into their warm homes unaware they were incubating them.
They gave them as gifts to kings and queens.
When they hatch they bore into the back of your neck and slowly take over your brain.


I've got similar metallic coloured nail varnishes so I'm off to make my nails cosmic.
