This is another sawn and polished face of a partially fusion crusted..(to me a " genuine green beauty" ).

Top center is sanded and polished, another possibly martian stuff...
Geo-chemist of Local gov university simply wanted me to donate some rocks, but i'm not interested to donate anything at this moment. After posting some more highlanders photos i was going to post different Lodran clans to discuss but, the truth, looks if in this British and Irish Meteorite Society i'm not going to make any space and i don't think i can spare more time for this forum...My last post!

Hi, I'm afraid many people on this forum have seen others post many pictures of self classified achondrites and meteorites which are all actually terrestrial. Everything you have posted pictures of so far looks far more like a terrestrial rock than a meteorite. Nobody here is qualified to actually classify but have years and years of experience seeing meteorites and meteorwrongs.

I have advised as much as I can and am just repeating myself. The right procedure if you are not happy with the advice is to take the specimens to an institution that classifies meteorites...and not to a geology specialist....many geologists are not experienced with meteorites. The specimens need to be analysed petrologically and possibly for Oxygen isotopes...that is the only way you will definitely find out if they are meteorites and it is vital if you are going to ever display them in public, or on websites, or sell them that they have this work done as self classification will only lead to problems with people questioning provenance or legalities of making such claims.

These are the places to ask if you are not happy with the advice here...try this link

Good luck.

I appreciate your advice and certainly agreed, a meteorite is difficult to identify just from a photograph,
These photos are taken with permission of the village owners who own this land, this private land is situated in Punjab Pakistan 100's of km away from where the mountain ranges start, and the rocks that i'm posting here are brought from roughly 250 to 300 away from this land...
From inside, strange line structure , some intersecting on facing opposite wall and these lines are 20 to 30 feet tall and broad may be more ...
This circular surrounded by villages deep place is around 200 acres and 140 to 150 feet deep. There is no aerial route,no mountain. cannot show a complete ground.
Isn't it a crater, meteor crater?

This rock is collected from the outside rim of this circular land with owner permission. Same line structure/marks as shown in photographs above inside walls, both sides of stone, melt veins...
Isn't it called a melt rock? or am i still on a wrong track?

I cannot give advice on such rocks..especially as you say, from photographs...you really need to get the rocks to somewhere where they can be analysed scientifically with thin section work etc.

Hi,

With respect to these markings, I'd be open to the idea of a mechanical excavator bucket having made them. That may be quite wrong, but there should be other indicators, such as tracks, if that is the case.

Thank you guys, i already have destroyed 2 rock sent for thin section, they could not cut it flat, so they returned back one in two pieces and other one with broken fragment..

This crater i dare to use "ejecta" is like U shape, right part that i've shown in first above image is larger than the part on the left, and the distance between facing line walls is more than 100 or maybe more meters, at the most 250 years old ago it was the same as it is now as grand grand father told their children.

Second part is yet to photograph...As no kind of elevation here i use edges to take photos or go deep down, its so sandy and muddy cannot walk properly

This is another crater like whole, much smaller than that shown above one, its around 80 to 90 feet deep. It is situated in same line or direction 2 kilometers further away, i have found some rocks which have same conical shape or arrow head with dot pattern..now please .correct me if i am still wrong.

To me it just looks like an old quarry with weathered rock or clays caused by water.

Ok as you say,
I've been studying these lines and craters for more than a year now, but my luck without any teacher and appropriate books which are not available in my country nor in any library, all the top geologists and mineralogists just hold and check hand specimens whether cut or polished in their hands which i show them but are unable to tell what it is...They havent seen any rock type such as mine before.
watch these lines just 50 meters away from this crater, not inside but outside on the ground, these lines are only visible in june and july months when its very hot and dry....Shatter rocks are only seen on these lines, rest of the ground is free of such rocks, i have detailed photography of these lines and area, with due apology, now this crater chapter is closed for me i will not talk on this topic anymore.
