Hi, it does not appear to be a meteorite to me from these pictures. Can you share some more info please? What were the find conditions/general location? Did you file a window?

Hello Togba,

I have seen a lot of unprepared, unclassified, stones from North Africa. If this stone is a meteorite, and the darker patches are remnant fusion crust,

then the lighter-colored areas in between, should show more weathering and smoothness. I can't find any feature on the surface that might indicate

that it is a meteorite. As others have suggested, you should create a window to be able to see the inside.

I do not see anything to indicate that this would be a meteorite. In fact, quite the opposite, there are vesicles apparent in most of your photos, a sure sign of a meteorwrong.
