    I continue to explore the channel of the mountain river and here is another find! does it look like a typical chondrite meteorite?

    Alwayslooking2, I also think what you have is a piece of slag, or possibly a somewhat enriched and reduced chunk of iron ore from the middle of the process between raw ore and finished iron/steel. I found some of the latter from a WW2 era iron ore processing experiment locally but i don't know how widespread it was and slag is certainly common and often magnetic.

    Anyan, I believe that your pieces are something like vesicular Basalt or another bubbly igneous rock which is made via volcanic activity, with the pale stone "amygdules" representing a secondary deposition of quartz or calcite in the cavities.

    I suppose that all the stones in the Universe are similar, because they are formed from primary dust in the process of forming stars and planets (high temperatures and pressure - I have a stone that is half sandstone and half already granite)

    However, there are ways to distinguish a meteorite from a stone of terrestrial origin, such as the charring bark and the internal structure of the stone, etd.

    The stone presented by me has signs of high-temperature exposure as a result of which it became very fragile and durable. The white quartz preserved inside has signs of boiling up. Therefore, we can assume that on the surface of the stone, interspersed quartz evaporated and formed holes.

    Blots of quartz inside the stone either acquired a special, fluffy structure or turned into steam and burst out, creating holes from the inside to the surface.

    Also, black inclusions are visible inside the stone - presumably coal from burnt quartz.

    Is it possible to create a similar stone in the earth`s conditions? I think not - the rocks of volcanic activity, vesicular Basalt etd. are completely different and are easily determined by known signs.

    Is it possible to create a similar stone in space? Yes, quite simply - a stone flying at high speed near the Sun will be warmed to the desired temperature and will not fall into the Sun.

    On Earth, it is impossible to repeat - only in space you can create something similar, since gravity does not change its shape and contact with other stones does not transform it.
    Well, I don't know where you came up with these statements, but there is absolutely no truth to them at all. None whatsoever.

    ok then tell me what happens to the stone that flies close the sun? How will it look after heating in space?

    And one more thing - if it is an ordinary stone, find the same one !!! (someone) Well this is not difficult, right?

    It might be Hematite.

    The fracture lines look wrong, did you use a regular magnet or a very strong rare earth magnet? It makes a difference unless the meteorite is an iron, in which as I stated, the fracture lines look wrong.
    one for sure way to tell is to cut a piece off, or grind and polish a flat surface of it, then etch it with nitric acid and look for widmastatten pattern.
    unfortunately, most people who actually know how to grade a meteorite are usually to busy to do it, as some of the test are time consuming in the case of a stony, or stony iron meteorite, can be quite complicated, i.e. nickel test and reflectance test.
    Some books are dangerous, not to be opened with impunity.
