    Meteorite?

    There is a spot called Jaulian not far from Sirkap an ancient Gandharan city in Taxila Punjab Pakistan.
    I have surveyed this area and found this particular object alongwith so many others
    which are scattered on the face of a hill. The locals there told me that this was
    fragments of a meteorite which are scattered on the hill upon impact.
    Anyway the object does not have iron although it is very heavy and looks metallic.
    It does not respond to a magnet.
    Sue appreciate if there is anyone out there that can advise on this.
    Thnks.

    Definitely has a high iron content. Find a University near you that has a geological wing.

    Re: Meteorite?

    it just doesn't have the right look for a meteorite. Metallic but not magnetic does not fit the description of a stony, stony iron or iron meteorite. Never saw one with a crack in it like that before. I am going guess this was made on earth and not outer space.

    Cool find

    My guess would be hematite (iron oxide).

    Re: Meteorite?

    googled it and it looks like petrified pooh
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.
