I was helping my brother do a roof on a house out in the middle of nowhere and when we were done and packing up, I saw what looked like a small iron rock (about the size of half a fist) sticking out of the ground, but once I dug it out, it's about 20 lbs, magnetic, and has what looks like blackish green pieces of glass all in it. This was in a place where I just don't see a piece of iron slag this large just hanging around... maybe it's ore, but I don't have a clue... Could this possibly be a meteorite ?

I never really looked into it. I still have it though, maybe one day I'll find out. Sorry for such an anticlimactic answer.
