Trying to identify this rock. Larger than a basketball; extremely dense and heavy. It seems to contain metal, but not highly magnetic. I can find no images online that resemble this specimen. My husband's grandfather found the rock in Southern Illinois in the 1920s. Family lore is that a farmer saw if fall from the sky and it had to be pulled out of a large hole. Doubt this is true. While it does have slight magnetic properties, it does not have a crust like a meteorite. It does appear to have formed under high heat. My husband drilled down about a 1/2 inch and it appears to be the same solid metal all the way through. A heavy red dust emerged when he drilled.
