Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

This could be a fragment of meteorite. The side we are viewing is smooth and that might be a worn fusion crust. The finder described it as "very magnetic" and that he could see metal flakes.
What is it?

Maybe a meteorite. It was found in Canada. I've urged the finder to show it to a Canadian expert.
