Meteorite ?

I think I found a Meteorite?

I need Help to identify this rock , This past Summer I was out with My Metal Detector and found this about 6 inch's below the ground . It showed up as 'Iron and nickel' both on the detector. It looks like it has a Burnt Crust from entering the Earths atmosphere. The info I found trying to research meteorites say its Close to being a 'Rocky-Meteor' Maybe I should Call the Kapernick observatory ?

Yes , most all Our valuable metals came from space , and YES If it is a Rare Stone Meteorite it could be worth more than a regular Iron ore Meteorite that are All Iron .I have looked at a lot of pictures of them and did some reading "Fingers Crossed"

That's cool, none of the nickle on earth was here originally. It all came in from meteors. Kapernick sounds like a good idea, good luck.

When You look at it close in real life' You can see all the shiny Nickel fragments in it , Also the brown color is from the Iron Rust . I really need a University or someone to Test it that knows all about Meteorites . Any leads would be Great ... MG
