Even stoney meteorites have small grains of native iron trapped in them so with one of these new neodymium magnets...very strong...it may be weakly attracted to that type of magnet.

I have since determined those to be slag and other junk, however I have found a few of what I believe are chondrites, they do stick to a magnet.

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!
