    Could this be a meteorite?

    I found this small black rock on the side of the road.
    Could this rock be a meteorite?

    It very well could be, but there are several tests that a stone
    has to undergo before it can be declared a true meteorite.

    You're keeping your eyes open and looking, and that's what's
    most important.

    I see no visual characteristics of a meteorite.

    Time for more coffee.

    It's many differences between surfaces which says that is not meteorite. Looks like kind of volcanic rock. Could you tell more about physic properties?

    Raisins aren't magnetic.
