    Strange metal, possibly a meteorite.

    Can you please tell me what is melall? Could this be a meteorite?
    Magnet does not stick. Very heavy. Silver metal color. Metal is hard.
    Found in a field on chernozem. There are no stones at all.

    If it is metal, and a magnet does not stick, the likelihood of it being a meteorite is near zero.

    Also, I see no meteoritic characteristics base on the images provided.

    I would guess a non-magnetic ore, possibly slag.

    Time for more coffee.
