    Lumpy green magnetic rock with chondrites, meteorite? Help!

    Found this a few years ago on my boyfriend's family farm. Was in a pile of field rocks. The farm is in Northern Indiana, about 10 mins from the Michigan State Line. I haven't checked density but it is very heavy for its size. It's strongly magnetic and has chondrites all over it. I couldn't tell with the streak test, I've never done one before, It was very faint gray. Much lighter than a pencil mark. Its dark green with lumps-reminds me of a toad. I included pictures wet and dry in natural light. I also added a couple of pics I took under flourescent lights I use for my succulents over the winter. The artificial light seemed to capture the details nicely in this case. Any suggestions on how to figure out if it's a meteorite? Or am I wasting my time lol?

    I see no visible characteristics of meteorites in the item pictured.

    Time for more coffee.

    Looks like old concrete to me... Old concrete had this nice blue or green color. Though could it be part of a old sedimentary Creek bed. If natural it could be an ore. I wouldn't get my hopes up.
