Bob, are you saying no to similar formations collected in China, or just that it’s not a meteorite? The lake rocks are terrestrial the ones in museums and around the forbidden city being highly prized in China they would also be collected elsewhere in the Middle East as well as copies.
I’ve seen rocks in shops and museums in China that look very similar to the one you posted, the color varies by the type of mineral and location of the deposit and some can be very valuable. Of course it’s difficult to tell from a photo and I’m not familiar beyond seeing these a few times but could this be something similar?
Here’s more photos to show the size and some detail. It weighs about 725 grams and looks (from the exposed interior) and feels quite dense. I was debating sending in a sample for analysis, but after the feedback I think I will go ahead and get it tested. Thank you for the feedback and I’ll update the post once I know something more!
