| Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:
Here's a pretty rock. It clearly does have a shiny coating and no
sharp edges. It doesn't have the aerodynamic shape, however, that
is characteristic of meteorites. Also, the dimples don't have the
shape of regmaglypts.
|What is it?
I have only seen this photo of this rock. It might be a meteorite.
I suspect, however, having seen others like this in hand, that it
is a terrestrial basalt that has been polished by wind in a desert
environment. It was found with meteorwrong number 79,
which is a terrestrial basalt.
