It is difficult to tell with no other info than a picture.

Is it heavy, light or just about right for the size? Does it scratch glass? Will a hard copper wire scratch it? We're there mines in the area? 

It looks like it could be sphalerite (zinc) crystals. But it could be a lot of other things too. 

Specific gravity, streak and hardness would help to identify. The trouble is your rock is a couple minerals (at least) and identification is going to be tough.

I have no idea. If it streaked blue green it is indicative of a copper mineral. So I am going to say it is a copper sulfide mineral with some quartz and some hematite in there in places.

Not meteoritic in my opinion. Definitely an terrestrial rock.
