Why this rock is probably not a meteorite:

The far side consists of big, shiny crystals. That might happen in a broken iron meteorite, but this thing is not magnetic, so it's not an iron meteorite. The near surface is flat, except for the holes. Flatness and holes both argue against a meteorite.
 
What is it?

It seems to be an aggregate of coarse-grained minerals. We only have the photo and didn't get a chance to hold this one and study it up close.
