Hi, does anyone have any ideas about this rock? It’s probably not but could it be a meteorite? It is magnetic, that’s all I know, thanks 😊 99C1716F-A1FA-4BC2-BCB8-6F30A4A71F86.jpeg  60BC9EF8-3D0A-434B-BBF5-3A4B56AF847C.jpeg  BDA93288-0E77-4155-90BC-DD6E46FC5155.jpeg  E40D71AC-5C4A-45EA-AA8F-BD608D7F6E9F.jpeg  846D1BCE-7474-47ED-AF58-87C51D4E31A0.jpeg

Looks like a rusty lump of iron. The only common strongly magnetic mineral I know of is magnetite or maybe there's metallic iron in amongst the oxides or at the core. The yellow stuff could be limonite. I think meteorite is pushing it a bit I'm afraid.

Looks like industrial slag.

I agree with Pete, this looks like an Ironstone to me. If its magnetic then it is indeed most likely Magnetite.
