Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

The finder of these objects says that he saw the one on the left fall from the sky. "I picked [it] up ... immediately after it stopped rolling and held it in my hand. It was warm but not more than 150°F or so."

Meteorites are never this spherical nor this green. Also, a freshly fallen meteorite would have a glassy fusion crust, which these objects do not appear to have.
 
What is it?

I haven't the foggiest idea of what these things are, but I do know that not everything that falls from the sky is a meteorite.
