    Most meteorites are super magnetic. Made up of mostly 2 metal iron and nickel a magnet will jump to the meteorites.
    Get yourself a rare earth magnet at Home Depot and attach a string to it. Some are sold with holes. Suspend the magnet near the rock.
    Specific gravity is another way. In the 1950's at Glorieta a geologist jumped in a cold creek to create a crude specific gravity method to prove he had a meteorite. A treated slice is another way to see it's finger print.

    A friend bought a meteorite for $12 so he could fine tune his detector. Just another idea.
