WOW!...now that's a meteorite. The dark exterior reminds me of NWA 4502...a CV3 also.

Me too, I would love to know what it is. If all those little round objects visible in photo nr. 4 are chondrules, my guess would be a type 3 whatsoever!

Will you get it classified? so at least we will know what it is?

That sure appears to have an attractive, deep, dark varnish! Is it a known CV source, and if so, Western Sahara as stated in description, or Algeria where purchased?

That's a beauty! Whole stones have a fascination for me.
