Is this a Meteorite or possibly a MeteorWrong?

My friend Rob found what we think is a meteorite in New York State about 6 years ago. Many of the top meteorite experts in the US have looked at this rock but they cannot say conclusively whether it's a meteorite or a meteorwrong. We had a sample tested in the famous ACTLABS facility in Canada and they say the composition of the stone is earth based. But the stone appears to have a fusion crust, it has regmaglypts, and it's shape is almost exactly like "The World's Largest Pallasite Meteorite" Brenham (meteorite). So maybe this was earth based material that was ejected into space as a result of a meteor impact with earth, and it returned to earth later. Maybe millions of years later. So there is one test that would prove once and for all that this stone is either a meteorite or a meteowrong, and it's called a Cosmic Ray Analysis. We can't find where this test can be done so we need help with that. But it's a very interesting identification problem. Please look at our website at:

or just the photos at:

OK Thanks to everyone that takes a look and tries to help us solve this identification mystery.

 

Cheers - Mal
