Hello everybody, I am new to this forum and wanted to ask you if you know what it is that I found. I found it in a river in Switzerland.

Thanks!

Welcome to the Tnet forums from Toronto joerib. :wave:
My first thought was the same as Tamrock, it's likely just a blob of melted aluminum.

Rub your thumb back and forth on it to see if it leaves a dark streak on the skin.
Smell it and if it has the sulphur/egg smell then it's silver, if just a metallic smell then probably aluminum.
(clarification silver meaning sterling .925)

I smell nothing, but maybe my nose is not that sensitive. It does not leave a dark streak.

A bit disappointed.. but even if it’s just a blob of aluminum the material still formed in a star’s core at one point in time😄
