identification for this stone

Looks like maybe achondrite middle pic w/possible flow lines on fusion crust. I know most > 97 percent will be magnetic, nongranular,nonporous, etc, but I have seen photos of lunar and achondrites(rare) which do not fall into most categories, (either granular from erosion or chipping, and lunar meteorites with pores in the fusion crust). Only way to tell would be to get an analysis done. Without fusion crust you cannot tell an achondrite from a normal rock without a lab.

See here for example.

More pics of achondrite


The pic on the right looks like a different stone and might possibly have chondrules in it.

See here. Pics of Chondrites. In particular the second picture on the page.
