Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

There is a crust on portions of the rock, but it's a bit to red for a fusion crust (but see next photos, 105).

It's too porous. No meteorite has this many holes.

The gray stuff looks like quartz. Meteorites don't have quartz.
 
What is it?

This rock scratches glass, so it is some kind of quartz, with a iron oxide coating.
