    Magnetic
    No streak
    However I donít think meteorites fracture like this on the inside.
    Any chance here do you think of it being a meteorite?

    And sry, I posted same picture twice! 🤷🏼*♂️

    I'd say it's more meteorite than not. Nice find whatever it is.

    Slag came to my mind as well. I ruled it out though based on where I found it. But I’m no expert either. thanks!

    If you can get a piece off and see if it's shiny on the inside it may help

    You _MAY_ have a stony chrondrite. Yes, that is a kind of meteorite. The only question I have is that it has interior cracks. Most meteorites don't. Cracks look like it was just about to split apart before landing, which is possible if it is a meteorite. The next think is to take the specimen(s) to a specialist. Arizona should have a lot of specialists. I think the H.H.Ninenger collection may be in Arizona, But don't know where. Good Luck!

    Thank you! The piece I cut off is very brittle. I know that because I dropped it and it broke into pieces. Is it possible under certain conditions for a Stony chondrite to become brittle?

    Provided the stone was near to exploding when it lit. ... I would think that the impact would have split it apart, not dropping it.

    Looks like a conglomerate of some type. Looks nothing like any meteorite I have seen or have reference pictures of. Since it has no visible characteristics of meteorites, my opinion is that it is not.

    If you wish, take it to a professional in the field and find out for certain.

    Time for more coffee.

    This is what I was comparing it with. A carbonaceous contrite. Are you familiar with these?

    My opinion stands until you have your item certified by a qualified lab.
