I found this while doing some dirt work at my new land in Edgewood. I’m always looking on the ground for arrowheads and noticed this odd shiny stone. It is also magnetic as you can tell from the image.

Given the shape, texture, and it is magnetic, my uneducated guess is yes.

I saw some years ago in a shop in NM and those look somewhat similar. The ones I saw were a bit more irregular in shape.

Scratch the rock against unglazed ceramic to see if it leaves a streak. A streak test is a good way to test your rock to rule out terrestrial materials. Scrape your rock against the unglazed side of a ceramic tile; if it leaves any streak other than a weak grayish one, it is not a meteorite.[18]
For an unglazed ceramic tile, you can use the unfinished bottom of a bathroom or kitchen tile, the unglazed bottom of a ceramic coffee mug, or the inside of a toilet tank cover.[19]
Hematite and magnetite rocks are commonly mistaken for meteorites. Hematite rocks leave a red streak, while magnetite rocks leave a dark gray streak, indicating that they are not meteorites.[20]
Keep in mind that many terrestrial rocks also do not leave streaks; thus, while the streak test can rule out hematite and magnetite, it will not definitively prove your rock is a meteorite on its own.
