I though it was just a type or iron ore, still not %100 sure but it does show all the characteristics of a meteorite.... i hope not cause I broke it into pieces and crushed a couple up to see if there was gold 😅 oops. Possible meteorite find. Screen12

Highly magnetic and when I broke it open it was full of iron and other metals, no silica what so ever, watching a meteorite identification video helped alot to, but I'm still only %50 sure it was... 😪 I still have some remaining chunks.

Polish one of the faces of the broken one you still have and look for the widmanstatten pattern, or send it to one of the Universities that do it and then you will know for sure.

You could get a nickel test kit off Ebay and check for nickel content. Iron meteorites have a high nickel content.
