I'm told it might be a meteorite... It's very heavy!
What is this?

Did you happen to find it on a farmer field by any chance? kidding, it really does look like something that fell through the atmosphere. it screams meteorite, would have thought the same had i found it.
Maybe you should contact someone online, if it is a meteorite then maybe its worth something to someone who would study it. The closeup image of its surface shows features one would liken to
metal reaching a high temperature, softening, then being blown by high wind speeds kind of like rain drops on a windshield.

I concur with the above mentioned to the fact that it looks like you can see some metal. Is in magnetic? and where did you find it? I ask because it does resemble slag as well. Best bet is to take it to a university and see if they have a geology department that can ID it for you.

I'll have to check to see if it is magnetic. It was found in a field out in the country. I wasn't there so I don't know more precisely.
