Description

Hi i am hoping you find this of interest, My mother who has passed away now told me along time ago that her father saw this fall to the ground he found it the next day on his land in a small depression.this would have occurred around 1920 to 1930 i guess as my mum was born in 1925 and she was told this as a child,the location was ashburton in the south island of new zealand.it ha s markings were they attempted to break it open with axes an hammers but didn't succeed and i guess lost interest and my mother kept it and now is in my possession so some 5 years ago i took it to a mineral rock shop and asked if he could cut it open 5min later he reappeared and said he felt it was a rock that had been rolling down the river for a very long time and if it was a meteorite he would not have been able to cut it [he died 3 months later.weird.] so what makes this worth you looking at is

although it appears round it is ever so slightly elliptical. has no magnetic attraction at all. when the halves are put together is slightly smaller than a tennis ball. and weighs some 418+ grams.
