I recently posted a photo
of a different rock this looks suspiciously like a
meteorite. My kids found another piece in the same general area that looks similar, also with indentations as if from impacts.
1. A magnet sticks to it.
2. Looks very much like an "old stone meteorite" depicted here
3. This small piece weighs 2.26 pounds.
I went back and check the original piece
and it too sticks to a magnet. (The first
magnet I tried was poor quality.)
It seems like the next test would be to check for the presence of nickel. Does anyone have a source for Dimethylglyoxime? Is the an easier way to
check for nickel? Or maybe a better nest step?
