Iam new to this forum and what I have looks like a meteorite. It has a dark brown fusion crust, contraction cracks,strongly magnetic and heavy for its size. I actually contacted two universities and i was told that this rock might  be a chondrite. So I have high Hope of it being a meteorite. 20220224_165110.thumb.jpg.e0c48d762b5efcb5a15acc7354e20b58.jpg20220224_163017.thumb.jpg.0e7bf5d37bc33dedf088b8ea9c389b35.jpg

Without seeing magnets stuck to it I'm leaning towards an earth metiorite.

Hellow! An update the university contacted me again and they told to grind a flat surface.  If shiny iron flakes will be visible then it must be a chunk of a chondrite because native iron does not exist in terrestrial rocks, iam so exited to see the interior, fingers crossed 🤞 and hope for some shiny metal flakes!

Hellow guys! A good news!  Iron-nickle flakes are clearly visible on its surface.  I  am delighted with that! I am absolutely happy and it had made my day. I think it adds enough weight for a meteorite!
