Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

We're looking at a sawn face. The finder noted that it looked like lunar meteorite Dhofar 1180. It does, but the clast-to-matrix ratio is greater than that of brecciated lunar meteorites.
  
What is it?

This photo was sent from Russia. I suspect that it's another volcaniclastic rock, like 118 and 151.
