Hello Everyone, found an unusual looking rock today with an amazing sculpting exteriour. Could these be regmaglypts?

Perhaps it is the camera setting, but the outer skin of this rock looks too light in color. Meteorites tend to look burnt, dark brown, on the outside from the heat of entry into the atmosphere.

Does that count also for achondrites? Beside the color of the stone what do you think about the shapes of the indentations?

The surface features here are the result of weathering and/or erosion on a terrestrial rock. I suspect this stone has spent time in the water, or in a very moist environment.
