If you see even tiny round bubbles, particularly spherical shapes, you likely have a bit of slag, not a meteorite, even if weakly attracted to a magnet. Melting during the generation of slag generates gases and magnetizes bits of iron and iron oxide present in the slag. Best to have an expert examine any suspected samples!
