Bill,

I thought this is what they call fusion crust, has this terrestrial defied the rules? Or is in agreement with your meteoritic litany.

Meteorite fusion crust is normally smooth, black, and about as thick as your fingernail. It may have crazing surface cooling cracks that are less than one millimeter deep. Your boulder has nothing similar to meteoritical crust.

Just like all Earth rocks that have a 1000's year old weathered surface.

This describes almost every terrestrial stone that has been exposed to weather for any appreciable amount of time.
