Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

Someone bought this rock at an auction as a meteorite. The rock is a blockier annd less rounded than most meteorites, but it does have what could be a fusioin crust.
What is it?

This could be a meteorite. A lot of the chondrites found in the Sahara desert look something like this.
