No metal. No chondrules. No meteorite.

What you have is not metallic. It is sub metallic. It is a sedimentary hematite concretion.

Find one that exhibits basic meteoritic characteristics. This one does not even come close.

Take baby steps. Learn the difference between metallic luster and sub metallic luster. That will be a giant step forward.

If you streak this rock it WILL leave a streak. If you are getting no streak then you need to work on that testing technique as well.

Your last photos aren't even close to being in focus, nothing can be judged by your photos as blurry as they are, but everyone has already told you what it appears to be and a meteorite is not on the list of possibilities.
