A meteorite 4.5 billion years old, almost as a planet Earth, was sold at an online auction for nearly €16,000.
On the website of the online auction house Catawiki, the Muonionalusta meteorite was billed as the “oldest known meteorite on Earth.” It weighs 26.5kg (58lbs) and is said to be excellent quality.
This stone from the universe was found in the early 1900s, not far from the village of Kitkiojärvi in the Swedish region of Pajala. He is part of the famous Muonionalusta meteorite collection.
