    Found while detecting. Got a decent signal, dug around, probe kept telling me the rock was the signal, brought it home and tried a magnet and it sticks together. Red appears to be rust marks.

    Here you go, I lightened it up a bit. Pretty cool if it is a meteorite. I don't know if you have any "hotrocks" in your area, but I hope its a meteorite. I'm going to build a PI detector and a BIG coil. I'll drag it around the pasture and maybe get lucky.

    If you hold a magnifying glass up to the front of your camera, you can get REALLY close. There isn't any depth of field to the scanners.

    Good luck

    Have you tried to file a "window" on the side? Should show Widmanstatten diagrams if a meteorite.
