Meteorites don't have holes you said. But they can have small pin-sized holes that looks like they have been poked by a needle or something

You cannot grind a face in a meteorite in centimeters unless you are in France.

not all meteorites have iron, do they?

wow. so many flaws in your reasoning. not all meteorites are nickel-iron. could be olivine meteorites to even just some other non-ferrous metal.

GOLDGUY Like, Now this is what I'm talking about. This would be a great topic of discussion for the Speaker/Lecture Series at the Abilene Gold & Treasure Expo 6-7 Sept 2014:

found a freshly fallen chondrite or stony meteorite that I witnessed. It landed in my lawn shaking my house. Its the size of a tennis ball only issues I have are its not that heavy like most meteorites, and although it has metal flecks its not that much lighter in the inside.

Does it have to be a diamond file?

thanks, my rock has too many holes and has no iron

What if it was submerged in water and the iron parts rusted out making holes where the metal used to be? You can't tell me that wouldn't happen if it was submerged in water for years.

I have a 140 gram meteorite!

I always wanted to know just how to tell if a rock was just a rock or a meteorite. Thank you for sharing with us all. Blessings !

I have found a meteorite on the beach in North Sidney. It was verified by a meturologist in Montreal and is authentic. You can look it up in the Nelson Star from last Friday. regards

If it is very dense, has small crystals or no crystals, and is dark from green to black, it is either an andesite (green to gray lava rock) or basalt (dark green to very black). If you have a locality that you found it I could give you a better idea of what it could be.

miss leading in some part there are meteorites that are not magnetic but have the same tests less the magnet test

You probably have a piece of hematite.

Iron is very abundant as its the final product of the stellar fusion process that is going on at the heart of every star. Towards the end of the star's life, almost all its fuel is fused into Iron making it the sixth most abundant element after Hydrogen, Helium, Oxygen, Carbon & Neon. All other chemical elements above Atomic # 26 (Iron) are manufactured by supernovae (exploding stars) as they are the only events that can generate sufficient energy for nucleosynthesis to occur. Very high energy.
