Coprolite or meteorite?

Recommended Posts

Randomguy123

Hi,

I found this in a creek in Austin. It's very dense and has lots of smooth bumps. I was wondering if it was maybe Coprolite or maybe a meteorite. I tested to see if it was magnetic but I couldn't really feel anything. It's about the size of a golf ball. Can someone help me id this?

 

 Thank you!

Welcome to the forum. It is neither a coprolite nor meteorite. It looks like an iron concretion, maybe hematite.

Iron concretions are the number one ‘meteorwrong’ so not a bad guess. Keep your eyes open, you might find one one day.
