Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

1) No fusion crust.

2) Too round (see no. 001).   

3) Too pink. Meteorites are not pink, although some highly weathered meteorites might be rust colored.
What is it?

This is some type of terrestrial rock related to rhyolite or granite.  The uncolored mineral grains are probably quartz and the pink grains are potassium feldspar. Both minerals are common on Earth but very rare in meteorites.
