Hello! There is such a stone, I think this is a meteorite. Is it necessary to buy isotope analysis?

The stone was found not in the desert, but in the temperate climatic zone. He was probably in the forest for about 50 years, in some places there were traces of passage through the atmosphere of the earth, the stone has many shock veins. Basalt.

Hi,

 

Welcome to Cloudy Nights!

 

I don't see anything in your photo that screams meteorite to me. That being said, shock veins sounds interesting. If you could grind a "window" into the stone to better show the shock veins that would be helpful. I use a diamond sharpening to to grind windows into rocks. If you decide to do that pleas share a photo of the window with us.

 

Thanks,

 

Peter
