Volcanic in origin would be my guess.  Maybe volcanic-igneous.  Basalt possibly.

Don't see anything on the outside that would indicate meteorite.  As in fusion crust or other signs of ablation.

Looks like a piece of basalt or a piece of dacite from an intrusive dike.

Okay thank you for the answer!

Those stones are both not magnetic right?

Basalt, I know can be  very hot rock, so I have been told.

Either can attract a magnet. It depends on how much magnetite is in them
