Does anyone have an idea why or how this pristine
meteorite got it's beautiful black fusion crust?

Hummm just a SWAG here but ...atmospheric transit at
36,000kps?, raising surface temps to an excess of
1400?C? followed by rapid quenching of the remaining
surface to below 600?C? Maybe I am delving too far
into fantasy.

My second guess would be a meteorite gnome?
