    Does it glow green by any chance? :D

    Sorry I have no idea where to get it tested but is it metallic? It should set off a metal detector. Meteorites are usually composed of a lot of iron.

    What leads you to believe it is a meteorite anyway?

    NUIG Geology department would be worth a call.
