Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

Here's another funny-looking rock. Meteorite fusion crusts never have a bubbly appearence like this.
What is it?

Once again, the reddish color and bizzare morphology suggest a hematite nodule or concretion. It was found in a creek bed in Indiana. Concretions weather out of sedimenatry rocks (limestones, in Indiana).
