Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

This is a big, roundish boulder in New Brunswick. It doesn't have any hint of a fusion crust. It has at least one planar dike running through it (left of center). A meteorite this big would not be egg shaped; it would be more irregularly shaped.
  
What is it?

A glacial erratic. It was rounded by rubbing against other rocks during the Pleistocene glaciation. It was dropped at this location by a melting glacier.
