Meteorites do not have flat parts. We have been sent photos of meteorwrongs with three kinds of flatness.
- Layered sedimentary rocks that are flat on two sides. Meteorites are not layered.
- Some igneous rocks (the one on the upper left, below?) fracture along planes, leaving a flat surface.
- Man-made things that started out molten and (1) solidified in a confined space so that the top is flat or (2) were poured onto a concrete or other hard floor so the bottom is flat.
