Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

1) No fusion crust.

2) Too angular.   

3) Veins.  Meteorites don't have large veins like this.  Some meteorites may have small veins (see lunar meteorites NWA032 and LAP02205).

4) Overall, the rock is too coarse grained.  Some lunar meteorites have large clasts, but they have many more small clasts.

5) Much of this rock is quartz, which is not found in meteorites.
What is it?

Can't tell from the photo.
