Possible Meteorite ?

Hello

 

This 73g stone was found in the subsoil of a Merseyside garden, the land has historically only been used as farmland, the stone reacts moderately to a magnet throughout, and has some small silver inclusions that may be nickel iron, some oxidised iron can be seen on the outer skin.

 

Judging by the way it cut on the diamond saw I would say the hardness is somewhere between 5 and 7, on a tile streak test it showed as dark grey.

 

 

 

 

Thanks Peter
