  • Telling Meteorites from Wrongs | Orton Geological Museum
    and come away bitterly disappointed I m sorry but they are what they are Second does the rock show layering Meteorites don t show layers or bands but earth rocks often do This included veins particularly ones with openings containing crystals These are not signs of a meteorite Third what does the rock look like on a freshly broken surface Many weathered surfaces contain dark iron and maganese oxides which make them look dark Dark is burned to many people who conclude that weathered surface must be a fusion crust formed when the sample roasted during passage through the air Nature is unfortunately good at making dark crusts through oxidation hydration microbial action and so forth at room temperature A fresh surface will reveal a lot about the rock Fresh surfaces will often reveal the details of a rock s composition and texture and allow its identification usually as a meteor wrong Also holes are not a good indicator of a meteorite Many people assume rocks with holes have boiled thus must have hurtled through the air at high speed Some meteorites may contain pits called regmaglypts but not holes Holes are from earth processes of weathering erosion or volcanic activity On a fresh surface a true iron nickel meteorite will be steely and not very brittle Stony meteorites will often have small spherical objects known as chondrules Beware though as earth processes also can make spherical objects in rocks such as oolites in sedimentary rocks and spherulites in volcanic ones My fourth test is this Are there minerals present that are known NOT to occur in meteorites Quartz and feldspars are common minerals found in many earth rocks but not in meteorites If any of these are present the sample is not a meteorite Fifth if there is metallic
