Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

1) No fusion crust. The finder thought that the green-gray exterior on the bottom part of the top photo might be a fusion crust. It might be, but more likely it is just the weathered exterior of a terrestrial rock. On the bottom photo (other side of the rock), the weathered exterior doesn't look like a fusion crust at all.

2) We are unaware of any meteorite that has such a dark interior with scattered white things.
What is it?

Can't tell for sure from the photo, but it resembles a piece of amygdaloidal basalt, like numbers 16 and 17.
