Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

1) No fusion crust.

2) A reddish meteorite would be one that contained metal that had rusted. Some metal would remain and the rock would be magnetic. This rock is not magnetic. A rock that is both reddish and not magnetic is not a meteorite.
What is it?

This rock consists mainly of various kinds of iron oxides.
