    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?
