Why does it look edible to me? Like a big chunk of halva.

Not the actual meteorite. More a cut out of it. You can buy meteorite plates that were cut out of one, to admire the structure below. This is a cubic cutout. The actual meteorite was as blob-shaped as they all are, due to the deformation during atmospheric entry and the friction heat generated upon this flying rock.

How big does an asteroid need to be for it to be able to condense metal particles into a solid block like this under it’s gravity? Or is this likely a fragment of a much bigger object? I guess I pictured asteroids being an accumulation of fine dust-sized particles into more macroscopic objects
