What is this... may include another one in the pictures.. from space? The metal showing is from a grinder that I used on it. Thanks

So, the metallic luster does not come from the specimen, but the grinder you used?
I'm unclear.

No fusion crust, no signs of molten glass with having sharp edges, doesn't look like a meteorite. Get it checked from a lab you or might be lucky in case.
