Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

The author found hundreds of thousands of these rocks while walking in a stream bed in southeast Arizona. They can't all be meteorites.
 
What are they?

They are all terrestrial volcanic rocks that have been rounded by abrasion. The vesicular ones are basalts; most of the rest are ash flow tuffs.
