Found this rock or mineral in my backyard

I found this on my first day of metal detecting. I put it to the side and thought nothing of it, but am very curious to find out if anyone knows anything about it.

It has shiny black material on it.

Very interesting, Candicetresch. With that black crust, could be a meteorite. Check this link and let us know what you think:

Thank you for the reply. Some of the things listed on that site are true for my find, some are not. Would be awesome if it is true!

Have you got a university or college nearby with someone who could check it out? Either way, would sure be interesting to have an expert look at. Sure is a nice size if it is.

Speaking of meteors and close calls, check this out... :LOL:

University of washington. Are professors willing to do that?
Here's a contact at University of Washington worth a try, candicetresch... If you ask nice and send pics, maybe he can give you an answer... if you find out anything, please let us know! Good luck :thumbup:

That was pretty good luck for them to put up a welcome center, and then have a meteorological event just happen in close proximity ,,, who'da thunk it could happen. That was astronomically amazing .

Im not 100% sure UW has a Geology Dept but they should. Have you looked in the phone directory for UW Depts? There should be geologists in the Seattle area and if like over here at the Univ Idaho would be willing to look in a heart beat st that. A lot can be learned from a small piece if you’re willing to donate a tiny chunk. Keep looking for someone and keep us posted!
