Instead of offering up an unending series of terrestrial material, none of which has so far been confirmed as a meteorite, your first step should perhaps be a rock and mineral identification group. Occam's Razor is a valuable asset for a reason.

i have no facebook . But what i donĀ“t understand is that you do not recognize it as diogenite or at least a HED type. see ebay: https://www.ebay.co....tm/125118624376. My stone has almost the same crystalazation.

I suggest we recognize that not all members use Facebook. Others don't have English as their primary language. Patience is sometimes required.

I would agree with the opinion, that is terrestrial and not meteoritic. A very popular book for learning about meteorites is called, "Rocks From Space", by Richard O. Norton. This is almost required reading once you enter into collecting and hunting for meteorites. The Cambridge Atlas of Meteorites is another great resource. 

 

Happy Hunting.
