I have not worked with meteorite, but my understanding is that it can be very difficult to work due to high density metallic content. Forging may be successful, turning may be very difficult. Great opportunity, though!
There's a chap on Youtube called Patrick Adair Designs that uses meteorite to make rings, I've watched a lot of his videos and I don't think you could do it with hand tools you'd need a CNC as it's pretty much just iron.
It depends on the type of material the meteorite is made from. I assume you wanted a metal type. There was a guy who took the shavings from one and cast it in resin and made a pen from it. I think he had a kickstarter campaign and then sold a few on etsy. I'm not sure what the iron content was in his, but i believe any meteorite you used would have the composition listed. I think the higher the nickel content the easier it would be to work with, but don't quote me on that.
