very heavy

0 votes

alt textThese heavy black rocks which have a very silvery metallic look under what seems to be a burn around the outside were found in a chaparral region of ca. (Temecula area) also in the same area I found many , many very out of place and odd looking stones some containing a iron like mineral which can be seen in the picts , all of these had a burn black on the outside so the inside color couldn't be seen unless the black was burned off with nitric acid, I left some of the crust on an area of some of them, there are no other stones or material similar to this in the area all of these were collected from an area about the size of a football field, A magnet is attracted to all of them some more than others, there is also large pieces of what looks to be melted Iron which has rust on it, I've had people tell me everything from metiorites to slag I think there is more to this than I think, this stuff looks to out of place and it's so far away from anything industrial I don't think it could have been dumped also because of the limited ability just to get to the site which requires 4wd there's no way the stuff could have been leftover slag. Help appreciated.

What trouble are you having with the pictures? Please describe. Alternatively can you upload them somewhere and share a link?
