We found a brown hollow rock in the woods in Sabine Parish, Louisiana , US. The tip of the rock had broken off, exposing the inside which is a black shiny rock.
Someone told us that it may be a meteorite or a carbonado stone.

Can someone identify it or point us in the right direction?

    $\begingroup$ Hi. Please read this guide and add as much information as you can. You probably also want to put in that Sabine Parish is in Louisiana because not everyone knows that. $\endgroup$ – Spencer Nov 28 '18 at 20:43

This is a limonite geode, no meteorite. A hollow underground space was filled with limonite through mineral rich waters flowing through the ground.

A very similar geode can be seen here

    $\begingroup$ Another rock on my list to find. I did not know these existed but if one thinks about it, these geodes could form in a similar fashion to other types of Geodes. $\endgroup$ – user824 Nov 29 '18 at 0:23
