evaldas, the fact that it is not magnetic means that it is almost certainly not a meteorite. The rock in your photos is most likely terrestrial.

Keep looking!

Has no characteristics of a meteorite; no crust, no crazing, interior is wrong, exterior is wrong, non- magnetic, and looks like a terrestrial rock in all aspects.

It's a rock.
