    my very first find, and first time to the board

    found this chunk of what i thought is just iron. father told me to take this to UWP to have them take a look at it. he thinks it is meteorite. this thing weighs about 5-6 lbs and its only 4 1/2 inches long. im going to call them tomorrow morning to see if they can look at it to let me know for sure what it is. i found this about 6 inches of dirt close to the river. i don't know but we'll see what happens. fyi...... great site.

    welcome to the site I really hope it turns out to be a meteorite! I have seen pictures of slabs cut from certain meteorites that have gem stones in them. Can be very valuable!

    i put a magnet to it. it stuck. i have an appointment to take it to the university of wisconsin parkside @ 3:30. they are going to take a visual of it and decide if there is enough evidence to continue investigating. the next step from there will be to slice a piece of it off, polish it and do a nickel test. none the less i have to see if it makes it pass the first part.

    thank you for all the warm welcomes. thank you.
