Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

It is a meteorite. Notice that the dark fusion crust is broken away in many places. The interior of the stone is lighter than the fusion crust; this is the normal for meteorites. Where there is fusion crust, the crust is smooth. There are a few regmaglypts visible in the fusion crust.
What is it?

This is one of the Park Forest (Illinois) stones.
