    The rocks in the bucket could be?
    They look too porous to be meteorites.
    I don't think they are, you could take them to a university or museum and have someone look at them. Also there are a number of Internet sites that would examine your specimens !
    Good luck

    No they are NOT meteorites. They look like basalt rocks.

    I had to sideline for awhile, too much quarreling, brand defensiveness, and seeing certain people waging war on others. It got to be too silly for me after awhile..

    Terry is right, they don't (look) like meteorites and they DO (look) like basalt. Are they magnetic?

    Both basalt AND meteorites can have strong magnetic properties. It may well have some hematite in it if it went through earth's pyroplastic ordeal. It could be be pyroplastic, but it's obviously not sedimentary rock. Meteorites are normally rather dense and heavy compared to metamorphic rocks. Softer than iron materials would have disintegrated upon entry and never would have gotten here in the first place. Earth's minerals melted in a volcano get nowhere near as hot as ones that blast through the atmosphere.

    Try this: Scratch it against a hard surface, like hard tile or similar;

    Black=(possibly) magnetite
    Red=(possibly) hematite
    Yellow-brown= (possibly) limonite

    Or, take it to your local college and have it ID'd free.

    Meteorites don't have "holes". They are not porous. TTC

ID:	1060736 All these are meteorites, and the small reddish-colored one is hematite, and yours look (somewhat) like it, but none of yours have holes either, just craters, like these. Right now though, I am almost convinced that you have found some "irons" (meteorites).

    Lucky, one of your pics is one of JMC's. For comparison, no doubt. Also, did you add the "one inch cube" notation above the cube? Scientific notation would require that cube to be universally accepted as a one cm cube. Just a hiccup on your part... or the picture source should be suspect. Anyway, his DOES look like the iron pictured. Time for the iron/nickle acid test. TTC

    Yes Terry, that is true about them being the same sample. No, I didn't make the notation, but like most things on the net, most of everything is suspect anyway, including the 6:00 "news." And yes, the tests can easily be done in a lab at any college or university. I am still suspicious about the one small sample though; is it, or is it not a meteorite? My money's on irons now though, mostly because of something I noticed later on, the rocks have a bit of a shimmer or shine to them on the lands but not the pits, indicating hardness which would enable them to be more easily polished - as they seemingly are to some degree.
