It has olivine green minerals which are captured black in my camera under sunlight. Only top half is sanded. "Un'' expected comments if any will be appreciated...

Finding such rocks usually takes months...Photos taken direct under sunlight, and it does vary colors specially these type of rocks as far as i have tested/photographed so far,

Another photo from different angle of the this rock, shocked, melt.

This one does have an interesting surface that is a lot like a fusion crust with contraction cracks, but we would need to see other photos of the rest of the stone and some interior matrix to confirm anything.

Not sure what you are saying as Lodranites are not Martian?

would be good to see a filed or cut end on this to see the matrix better.

Looks like glassy industrial slag with bubbles and vesicles to me.
