Remember the Michigan meteorite that lit up the January sky, terrified local residents, and fascinated meteorite hunters?
Well, now you can buy a piece of that interstellar rarity, but it'll come with a hefty price tag.
According to a Detroit Free Press article published this morning, a meteorite fragment found by Royal Oak resident Ashley Moritz in Livingston County will be sold by Christie's during an auction series called Sculpted by Nature: Fossils, Minerals, and Meteorites. According to Christie's, it is one of the best preserved meteorites in the collection.
As the fascination with meteorites grows, so does their value. Christie’s meteorites can cost anywhere between $5,000 to $250,000.
