The phrase “pie will not fall from the sky” is often used to warn friends playing with stones not to be deceived when buying stones. However, although there will be no pie in the sky, there will be a “stone” in the sky, and this “stone” can be changed into a train of “pie”!
The most expensive meteorite is in Xinjiang
The thing is, on December 25, 2013, a “fist big” stone was placed in the center of a meteorite shop in Urumqi, Xinjiang. This “stone” is 15 cm long, 8 cm wide and weighs 434 grams. The most important thing is that its price is as high as 80 million yuan, equivalent to 12.5 million US dollars. For a time, this dark “stone” aroused the strong concern of the society. It is said that the stone “fell from the sky” and finally landed in Qitai County, Xinjiang.The result was seen by the local herdsmen and dug it out of the ground.
The reason why it dares to mark such a high price is mainly because it is a “meteorite witness”. The so-called “meteorite witnessed” means that someone witnessed the whole process when it fell, so its value is much higher than that of ordinary meteorites. In addition,Zhang Baolin, a senior engineer and meteorite expert at the Beijing Planetarium, once commented on the meteorite: “this meteorite is well preserved and rare in China and even in the world. It should be more than 4.6 billion years old, the same age as the earth. Its scientific research value, economic value and cultural value are immeasurable. “
In fact, there have been many meteorite falls in China before. Finally, these meteorites have been picked up by some local farmers and are waiting for a price. Relevant data show that there are no provisions on the ownership of meteorites in China’s existing legal provisions. This means that whoever picks up the meteorite belongs to him. Moreover, in China’s laws and regulations, there is no explicit prohibition on the sale of meteorites. In foreign countries, the price of meteorites is several times higher than that of diamonds. Therefore, anyone who is lucky enough to pick up such a “stone” can really struggle for 200 years less. most expensive jewelry in the world
However,things like this can’t happen several times a year all over the world, so the probability of picking up meteorites is really lower than winning the lottery. However, although meteorites are difficult to pick up, the probability of picking up jade is still very high. Next, sister Bao will make an inventory of the priceless gemstones that have been found.
