    Looks good to me, but I am definitely no expert.

    Visible characteristics show potential. From here, to verify it a meteorite, have it evaluated by a qualified professional. There may be someone in Geology or Earth Sciences at a local college who could help with that.

    Time for more coffee.

    Could it be a stone meteorite?

    ok, but how can you explain these holes on the surface? I am well acquainted with the types of stones in my area, but I see such a stone for the first time

    Visually, your rock has no characteristics of meteorites.

    Your rock was once part of a seabed with an abundance of shells. Most of the holes are where shells used to be. Most of the white flecks are fossilized shells.

    Doubts? Take it to a geologist.

    If the first one is a meteorite I have some rocks I need to get checked out that I thought were slag or iron ore.
    Looking forward to any update, Alwayslooking2.

    @galenrog - Thank you very much for your opinion. However, the white blotches are quartz. What do yellow blotches I do not know, what is it, but my stone is absolutely similar to this chondrite meteorite from the market:

    ( http://www.meteoritemarket.com/NWA7402.htm )

    in my region of the Eastern Carpathians, there are no stones with shells


    Wikipedia:
    Chondrites are stony (non-metallic) meteorites that have not been modified due to melting or differentiation of the parent body.[1][2] They are formed when various types of dust and small grains that were present in the early solar system accreted to form primitive asteroids.

    black spots looks like coal, which is typical of chondrite meteorites

    March 24, 1857 in the farm Shvedino Petrovsky parish Novogrigorevskogo county of the Stavropol province almost a peasant Maxim Kalashnikov fell on a stone from the sky. Since then, the meteorite has been studied, described and is now stored in the Meteorite Collection of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

    The meteorite-chondrite weighs 1500 grams, 132 mm long, 93 mm wide, 66 mm high. Dark olive, stone surface with metallic inclusions, magnetized.

    His name is "Stavropol".

    The fact that your stone has vesicles on the surface is a red flag. Meteorites do not display vesicles. That said, I cannot tell you what rock type your stone is, but I have collected both fossils and meteorites for many decades, and I don't believe the holes or vesicles contained fossil shells at any time. But, that is very clearly not a meteorite.

    Well, I'll have to stand corrected. An extremely tiny percentage of meteorites show vesicular crust:

    Vesicles in Meteorites

    With that said, you would need to submit a sample to a lab recognized by the Meteoritical Society. The answer you desire cannot be provided to you based on photos.

    Thank you very much for your response! Logically, the only way to create a bubbly surface structure of a stone is if he flies close to the Sun - the Sun warms he to a boiling state and at the same time it remains a stone and retains its shape.

    On Earth, it is impossible to repeat - only in space you can create something similar, since gravity does not change its shape and contact with other stones does not transform it.

    I completely agree - firstly, the shape of the holes is not similar to the shape of the shells, and secondly, where would they go from inside the stone?
