    Iron Meteorite?

    I found this by the Ottawa river today. It is very magnetic and dense. Could this be an iron meteorite?

    I have provided pictures of the front and back.

    You may want to run some tests on it as it does display the "colors" of Platinum METALS oxides

    No visible characteristics of meteorites.

    Time for more coffee.

    After looking closer, probably just iron ore, not a meteorite. It is porous, or at least has several holes in and around it. But to be certain, test it for nickel.

    It's look like a slag. Cut it and show what is in side.
