Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

The finder thought this rock had a fusion crust. Too thick.

It's not magnetic, has a specific gravity of 4.5 (too high for a stony meteorite), and makes a rusty red streak.
  
What is it?

A hematite concretion that formed by deposition of layers - layers that are now spalling off.
