    Do We Have A Geologist for Meteorites?

    'Gao' is from the internet search. The holey one was in the creek near my home. It was found when head hunting. No factories or furnaces around here for it to be slag. It is light weight for it's size. College prof said to cut it and send him 20 percent of it as his fee to identify it. I didn't want to do that. I can't think of anything to cut it with anyway. How about a concrete saw? If they are metal based, will that work? Band saw? The other one was found on vacation in the Chesapeake Bay. We were up an inlet. No place for wash down. This thing wouldn't wash anywhere anyway. It is way heavy for it's size. Definately metal based. I thought it might be ballast from an old ship or a spur from a cannon ball. The same prof suggested that it looks more like a meteorite than the holey one. Just thought some of you might have an opinion. I've never seen a meteorite before. We had a large red meteor blow up over our area about 15 years ago. It put off about 8 tailings and the big part kept going South. I have to add pics in a reply to this thread, it won't take them all at once. Must be too big.

    Is pumice a normal thing to find in an Ohio creek in the woods? What about the second set of pics?

    Which one? The holey one or the melted iron one? Or do you mean both?

    I did forget to mention that they are both just slightly magnetic. Sorry, important point!

    Oh, man of few words, I would really like to have your opinion on the second one.
