Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

I received this photo with no information other than an e-mail subject line that read "possible luner rock." A month later I received a chemical analysis. In the photo, it resembles a lunar breccia, but the chemical analysis showed it to be of terrestrial origin.
  
What is it?

Probably a volcaniclastic rock. I might be able to make a better guess if the sender had mentioned where he found it.
