Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

This is another one where the finder said it looks "exactly like" lunar meteorite QUE 94281. The specific gravity was only 2.25, less than most nonvesicular rocks, so the vesicles must be in the interior as well as the exterior. Meteorites don't have interior vesicles.
 
What is it?

A cinder?
