Answered as far as possible - Is this a Meteorite ?

Whilst out Metal Detecting I came across this rock, my detector reported it as a Nikel object..

  • Its very heavy for its size 320grms
  • it has several rust spots
  • I have done a couple of small cut-aways and it is a solid silver metal

 

the baffling part is that it is not magnetic !! I have now found two of these within 500mtrs of each other.

 

there is a credible area next to this of a large impact crater.
