I would like to show you what I found around two weeks ago on 24th July 2013 in the yard. At first I asked myself, "What kind of a strange stone is this, where does it come from one day to another?"
I picked it up and looked at it from all sides, it is 3.3 cm long in the longest section, smooth on one side, but with mini notches, as if one
had pierced with a sewing needle a couple of times. The backside is shattered, actually everywhere of optical consistency as if it were brittle, but it is not. It seems to be of homogeneous consistency.
On the whole it weighs 20.7 grams and has a dark green shimmer.
In terms of feeling, it is metallic and at the same time like rock, in any case not magnetic, which I have been able to prove by several
As soon as I had the foundling in my hand I had the feeling that it could be a meteor, not only because I had never seen such a stone
before, but simply because he was there suddenly and from his whole appearance.
I was also concerned by the thought that he could not be from a river. Because it is smooth only in a relatively small place. Smooth stones, such as pebbles, are formed over centuries or millennia by grinding with sand in rivers, rivers. Well it could be a break-off, but the weight is way too big for every stone, so the mass ratio gave me puzzles.
Of course I searched the Internet, and found exactly such stones. Here is a twin of my stone. Remarkable is he is just as big to the 3 cm and has almost exactly the same weight on the gram, and besides the same color, only my is not too completely interlaced and has on one side smooth places.
The photo of my meteor or stone I attached below in the post, I made the picture on the letter scale. For security reasons, I do not keep it with me, if it is really a meteor, it has of course a value.
Not far from me is the Treburer Sternwarte, the ? Astronomy Foundation Trebur, also called ? Michael Adrian Observatory, there is one of the largest German telescopes of 1 meter. This is exactly where I want to make my find scientifically evaluate.
Maybe someone already has an idea here.
All the best and kind regards
