Hi Dean,

They both look like iron to me -- the question is whether
the iron is meteoritic or manmade. Have you tried etching
it (assuming you have the means to)? If you have a Radio
Shack in your area, just pick up some ferric chloride PC-
board etchant. Red liquid comes in a little plastic bottle.

I just had a bunch of rocks sent to me from the finder in Quebec Canada and
two actually looks like they could be meteorites. They are very strongly
magnetic like a campo. The first rock looks to have more potential of being
a meteorite than the second one but the second one looks interesting also.
The face on that first meteorite looks polished and makes a good mirror. The

second rock looks similar to a couple silicated irons that i have seen.
See here and if anybody can identify the material from the photo as a earth
rock that is found in the canadian shield let me know
Anybody think that these two might be worth getting checked out as being a
meteorite? That first rock could sure fool me - especially considering how
strong magnetic it is. It appears to be solid iron.
And if they are not meteorites you have some photos of a couple VERRRRRY
Good meteor wrongs.
