Hematite-encrusted rock

Reverse side - a few patches of the interior stone are visible.

These holes also suggest that the rock is not a meteorite.

Fusion Crust Detail

Detail of the 'fusion crust'. It's about 1.5-2mm thick, so again indicative of terrestrial origins.

    Not all meteorites pass the streak test.

    Did you hear the news about NASA discovering hematite on mars ?
    Also here in Oklahoma back in the 1960s archaeologists found a slab of polished hematite associated with other ancient artifacts.i have always wondered what their fasination with hematite was. I also have a large one I thought might be some kind of meteor that I found at the bottom of a limestone ledge about 30 feet high that is the site of an archaic camp, nomadic people from the end of the last ice age.

      I think people are not accepting that they are everywhere. Because then they will be worth less. You would never believe what I have. And yeah some of them are rounded…. Duh, the Indians had them first. I live where I can find beautiful arrowheads, so I know I’m right about most my finds. And they all came from my back yard. I still can’t believe it, it’s amazing!
