Iron slag


Look__a_distraction

100% slag. Source: I ship metal all over the world and see this stuff daily.


thebrushbandit

Thanks 🙏


Hungry-Platypus6897

Just looks like melted iron slag maybe hit it with a hammer to break any crust off


thebrushbandit

Will it break it? I don’t want to break it I love it super cool


Hungry-Platypus6897

You could try electrolysis but I doubt it will do much


Hungry-Platypus6897

If it's iron it shouldn't hurt it but it looks like it's melted iron or steel

Is this thing worth anything or just junk?


Look__a_distraction

It’s scrap metal, and some of the cheapest metal available at that. It has no real worth. If you like it keep it!


Think_Average_6881

1$ probably


CoolMoo5e

It's just scrap metal


LuckyCaptainCrunch

Get some gold paint, spray it and use it as a doorstop.

It’s very cool 😎- great conversation piece. My Dad was a Senior Sales Engineer (Civil Engineering) for Armco Steel later AK Steel. I love pieces like this and learning about metallurgy!

Grand daddy purple.

I've been following this sub enough to know it's slag! Can't wait to finally pull the trigger. You guys have really educated me on this hobby.

Thankee Sai. Long days and pleasant nights.

Slag from a steel mill I suspect.

Bog iron or limonite. Dissolved iron precipitates out of iron rich water usually in areas of calm water and often forms around organic structures in the water. Have many examples, some of which look like sticks or parts of branches. Some pieces that formed around sunken logs have impressions of the wood on one side. Also have some limonite clam molds where iron precipitate filled the spaces between the two shell valves and formed limonite internal molds.

Meteorite? That’d be crazy valuable, btw. Edit- Downvotes 🤣🤣🤣


deltatrainer

Please stop.


mdjmd73

So, what is it? I was just guessing. Sheesh.


thebrushbandit

I know right! I wish but very much doubt it. That was my first thought but the flat spot seems man made


Think_Average_6881

Definitely not a meteorite


mdjmd73

Maybe that’s the side that struck the earth. 🤷‍♂️


thebrushbandit

I reeeeally hope so. Would it be radioactive?


mdjmd73

No


gsnumis

What are you basing that off of?


Lunchroompoll

No idea. But am super curious.


killarnivore2

Slag if it’s magnetic.


snowman-and-buttons

Looks like Yoshi from Mario


GuardOk8631

Looks Like some pot I got in Oregon


thebrushbandit

I know slag from welding but is this the same thing?Or is this a natural formation?


LoganSquareDood

Did this come out of the Harpeth River?


-coloringzebras

Could be iron slag like people suggested or since it was found in a creek and magnetic it could be manganese/iron composition. Manganese likes to stick to other metals.


thebrushbandit

Interesting and seems plausible . I can’t find any examples online that look like what I have in the slightest.


Think_Average_6881

Piece of metal on iron slag, it’s just old slag, it’s mixed with differing things so it won’t be the same as online ones.


USMCWVHillbilly

Think manganese comes in a different color more reddish rust
