Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:
 
The finder described this thing as being a little bigger than a golf ball before it was broken open. He also described it as being very hard and dense.

There aren't any kind of meteorites that have a radiating texture like this. There's some kind of rind, but it is not a fusion crust.
 
What is it?

It is a mass of pyrite (iron sulfide) in a form marketed as "iron pyrite sun." Google that.
