Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

Some iron meteorites have shapes that resemble this rock, but this rock is stony, not iron. Stony meteorites won't have deep holes like this. Regmaglypts are much shallower.
What is it?

This rock has been rounded by abrasion against other rocks in water. It might be a piece of limestone in which holes were made by a mollusk that bored into the sediment.
