Hi again...the last definitely looks terrestrial. Interesting to see the thin sections...I am no expert on such but have seen and worked on many meteorite thin sections at the University and if these are meteoric then they are completely recrystalized and don't appear to show any signs of chondrules so would be achondrites. On the other hand they look like many terrestrial rocks such as basalts etc...You really need to show these to a University or get official anaysis done to say one way or the other. No other way I'm afraid.

Hello and thank you for answering.
I will agree with your opinion that the stone from the last photo looks like an earth rock, I kept it because there is something interesting in it. :)

Which university do you mean, where can I show the stones? Or where to send samples for a reliable analysis of pebbles?

I add some photos of thin sections of stone.

Many suggested here....http://meteorite-identification.com/verification.html

But bear in mind that they will not want to be inundated by samples as they have to fit in anything extra like this in between their funded research proposals. And if they agree the work can take many months....sometimes years.
