Found this last summer metal detecting:

- It is very heavy/dense and very hard.
- It is coated with aggregated chondrules
- It has olivine seepage and olivine chondrules
- It has gold deposits. They are soft and have not tarnished for over a year. *SEE NOTE*
- It has various metal particles on the exterior. Some shiny and some rusted in appearance.
- Some particles on the outside look like iron meteorites.
- It is NOT MAGNETIC

I wish I could get some macro shots but I don't have the camera to do it.
I will say it is amazing under a 14x loupe.

Any ideas on what it may be? I figured a few rock hounds out there may have some theories.


*NOTE* I am quite positive the gold deposits are not pyrite.
The deposits are much warmer in color and they are soft.

Cosmic Candidate?
