    Thank you

    I was thinking slag or some sort of iron.

    I just don't know I have been looking and researching as soon as I find out I will update. I used 3 various sized magnets and they all love it. I checked out your site and will continue to do so. Thank you!

    I always hope for metiorites. The unfortunate reality is most are man made.

    Search the web. There are sites that walk you through the metiorite ID process. There are also sites that specificly ID slag material.

    We all want to find space rocks, but imho slag is uber cool! Types of slag are identifiable. Each represents a different manufacturing process within a historical period. A rare type, can be valuable to the right person.

    My attachment is a recent slag find. I found it with a metal detector. It's non magnetic with a flow pattern. Its a glass material, similar to obsidian. It looks exotic, but homemade!

    I'm on my droid right now. My paste feature is limited. Go to Google...type in 'how to identify slag'. Near the top, there should be a PDF from a metallurgy site. (nc.PDF??) Very informative! I can't paste it, but have read it. If you can't find it...email me. I have better sending options from there.

    Your best information will come from geological sites and metallurgy sites. Slag has a story...and its kinda cool!
