Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

Oh, dear. No meteorite has ever looked like this.
 
What is it?

Hard to say. It's probably man made. Looks like glazed china.

Later: Horst F. contacted me suggesting that this "appears to be from a glass furnace that made green glass. When an old glass furnace is rebuilt the old material is hauled to a dump or landfill. The white material is commonly called AZS (alumina-zirconia-silica)."
