Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

Meteorites don't look like this. They never have planar veins running through them. Also, meteorites have smooth surfaces and aerodynamic shapes. If this rock had been a meteoroid, all the stick-out parts would have been the first things to ablate away as it came through the atmosphere.
What is it?

I can't tell from the photo.
