I agree with Tylerknight. The tiny airholes are a dead giveaway that it is not from space. Gotta have the "thumbprints"!
We used to hunt meteorites, and would take what we found to TCU in Ft. Worth, Texas. They have a wonderful meteorite museum (Monnig museum) and a
very friendly geology department. To our dismay, even the ones that were highly magnetic were not from space. After seeing many meteorites up close,
they become easier to identify.
If you live in a part of the world that gets more moisture in the form of rain, fog, etc., then meteorites will not last too long out in the open, as
they rust away.
Keep hunting, though....it's a lot of fun, and you never know what you'll find!
