Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

1) No fusion crust.

2) Too round.  This rock has the shape of an oblate spheroid, which is rare among meteorites.
What is it?

can't identify the rock type from the photo, but a shape like this is common among terrestrial rocks that have been abraded by other rocks and wave action near the shore of a large body of water or in a fast-flowing river.
