    Nothing you have shown has any visible characteristics of meteorites.

    Pick up a few guidebooks. Visit websites of certified meteorite labs.

    Time for more coffee.

    1st - I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard BobbyBongarzone1176! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country). You might also consider adding your state (or country) to your displayed profile (SETTINGS -> EDIT PROFILE) - members may have more success helping you (your location may help, etc.)...
    2nd - If no one can identify your find - you might consider posting your pictures on ROCKS/GEMS for more exposure...

    Welcome from Texas

    To determine if meteorites do a magnet test on them.

    Magnet test is meaningless as a definitive test. Much of the gravel in my driveway is attracted to magnets.

    Do as I suggested the OP do. Pick up a few guidebooks. Visit websites of certified meteorite labs.

    Still readin on meteorites. Thought that only as a clear suggestion for figuring internal properties as to most being magnetic. But I agree that none shown have “visible“ properties of a true meteorite. Thanks anyway

    Not only are many terrestrial rocks magnetic (as are many-made slags, which are commonly mistaken for meteorites), but some meteorite classes don't have enough iron in them to be attracted to a magnet. There's a roughly 5% chance for a meteorite to be from a non-magnetic class and a somewhat higher chance for it to be only weakly magnetic.
