Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

The morphology (shape) is wrong. Although smooth in places, it doesn't look like it was smoothed by ablation because there are still knobby parts.

On a rock like this that has a shiny coating, the best thing to do is cut it open and look at the inside.
What is it?

Don't know. Could be another hematite concretion. Do a streak test.
