Meteorite ?

Strange stuff, yesterday I stopped on a gravel road at a place I noticed that the ground didn't freeze and have been thinking about for
2 weeks. Sure enough was a bit mushy for frozen solid. Today I ask a friend if antifreeze does that type of thing up here @ the 45th or am I nuts while I have the metal detector in the vehicle. I'm thinking Russia satellite, got to stop reading these, the sky is falling books. The bounce is uranium and gold mining in the area, anyhow I stop again and the detector goes blank in the area. Hmmm, break out the shovel and not easy digging. Try the detector again, the non-signal is gone, cool. Got the thing in hand and still shuts off the detector. All I have is a cheapy volume knob control, seems to have stopped working right up here next to Iron mountain MI. Then the inlaw shows up and said that he dumped antifreeze there...
So I wash it off and it is black and like a regular rock smooth on one side and broken on the other like it exploded and on the smooth side looks like the surface popped off like a torch to concrete. The broken side looks like polarized crystals as if they move about 1/32" above the surface, I don't shake much and don't need glasses up close.
Recently I gave away a lathe and noticed almost out the door a magnet so strong I couldn't get it off and it was given back weeks later, which I keep in a special place with a warning sign. This thing jumps right up to the magnet and the taconite that I have from years ago slowly moves to it. The thing is greenish compared to the taconite.
I saw one site for nickel testing , but lost it at the moment. I also found a impact site close to me through google earth, but as yet been able to figure out how to find out or not, big lush cedar swamp. Someday it will be magnetometer experiments.
Anyhow, thought that was weird, found something on a false anomaly.

If it is a meteorite, don't play with it too much. They can be worth 100X their weight in gold.
Have someone who knows about such things check it out.

It could be a meteorite.
When I was a kid I found an egg shaped piece that was as you described. I may still have it.

I've just heard something so terrifying that it will make your hair fall out.
Oh. I see you've already heard it. Never mind.

One of my past bosses (African-American)was going gray and balding. And he was younger than me. He was always whining about it. One Friday afternoon, we were sitting in his cubicle and he was complaining about it. I said, "Al, just shave the rest of it off. Its the 'in' look with all the NBA players". I was just joking around, but the following Monday, he came in, completely bald.
My grandfather did the same thing. When his hair started to go, it all got shaved off. He looked sort of like Yul Brenner.

If the green is olivine, you got something. Those Meteorite Men take theirs to a University in Arizona, is it Flagstaff?

Sounds like a typical sample of green kryptonite.

    --Go to a car stereo place and look for "Duramat" (IIRC). Basically it's a peel-and-stick sheet of clay. It does a great job of deadening sound and other vibrations. I've seen it used in doors, under hoods, etc to knock down all kinds of noises; oughtta work a treat as a cheap-ish retrofit; no fancy sandwich steel technology needed.
