meteorite, silver?

Hi

Merry christmas!

I found this stone few days ago, was wondering if you could help me to identify it?

Its silvery, sparkly, very magnetic, and very heavy...

    Hi 1bear, happy christmas to you and your family as well.

    Your specimen is very interesting and could be blast furnace slag, was it found inland or on the coast?

    Nice find.

      Yes - an interesting object.

      The surface texture suggests slag to me, but let's not get ahead of the evidence...

       

      By 'very magnetic', do you mean:

      - it attracts unmagnetized steel, or

      - that a magnet is attracted to it?

       

      Streak test result?...

       

      Density?

       

      Does it 'ring' when you hit it with something hard (somewhat depends how you hold it), or does it give a dull thud?

       

      Mike
