Meteorite Identification
LVAAS frequently gets calls about identifying whether a found rock is a meteorite or not.  In all cases to date the found rock was not a meteorite.  In fact in many case it is obvious that the found rock is not a meteorite.  Anyone that has a rock that they suspect may be a meteorite is requested to look at the following website. 
http://www.aerolite.org/found-a-meteorite.htm
This website contains a wealth of information on the identification of meteorites.  With a little bit of reading you can very probably readily conclude whether your rock is a meteorite or not.
Sorry, but LVAAS does not provide meteorite identification services.
