small rock I believe is a meteor that came from space it sticks to a magnet shiny and looks like crushed burn black. Thank you all for your help I love this site so far the few posts that I have posted were really helpful thanks again
Ca .Sorry, but it's neither a meteorite nor a tektite. The surface appearance and the clasts that I can see are not characteristic of a meteorite. You haven't said where you found this, but tektites are impact-related to the extent that they are only found in certain parts of the world. They're essentially a form of glass arising from very large impacts, are usually very homogeneous, and never attracted to a magnet.
Looks like aliens made that one. Neat!What about this rock anyone?
Oh, that's so funny and witty HAHAHALooks like aliens made that one. Neat!
What about this rock anyone?
What is this sign Japanese,
These two don’t look the same look at the texture on these rocks I believe the first rock is tektite and it doesn’t Stick to a magnet and Second one is ? But sticks to a magnet
I didn't see the other post, but Thank You for the info.I replied on your other thread that this is a Japanese 'ren' character, commonly seen on ornamental stones in Japanese gardens.
I know for sure this not ! a tetktites, I just here to Learn and read I do not admit to any of these being meteors, comment or whatever I just ask a question but I really appreciate all your help even the jokestersThere are no tektites (or meteorites) in any of your pictures. These are the main tektite strewn fields arising from impacts large enough to have created them. There may be a few outliers beyond these areas but either rare or as small micro-spherules.

Tektites are a very pure form of natural glass formed at extremely high temperatures. The surface appearance is consequently obviously vesicular (rounded bubbles from expansion of gases or water vapour which may be elongated ovals). They may also exhibit flow lines or other melt features and/or aerodynamic sculpted shapes from travel through the atmosphere in a molten state and occasionally stratified. None of those features are apparent from your pictures.
A few examples (from my collection) which show typical appearances:
