In recent years, there has been a upsurge of meteorite collection in China. In the past three or four years, not only the price of meteorites soared, but also the domestic meteorite collection market gradually took shape. Four or five years ago, the economic value brought by meteorites was not well known. "Nobody knows, nobody cares, nobody asks, nobody pays attention", once a meteorite collector used this phrase to describe the meteorite collection market a few years ago.
It is understood that in the 1990s, there were only about 200 people involved in meteorite trading in the world, but now the number of people involved has increased to hundreds of thousands. With the expansion of meteorite collection circle and its rarity, the global price of meteorites has risen from a few dollars per pound to a huge figure comparable to that of DIA and even higher than that of DIA.
Meteorite refers to the meteorite residue falling on the ground, which is composed of iron, nickel, silicate and other minerals, also called meteorite. It also refers to meteorites containing more or all stones. A large number of organic substances such as ammonia, nucleic acids, fatty acids, pigments and 11 kinds of amino acids were also found in meteorites with high carbon content. Therefore, people think that the origin of life on earth has a considerable relationship with meteorites.
Meteorite, also known as "meteorite", is an unburned stone, iron or a mixture of stone and iron, which is scattered on the surface of the earth or other planets by cosmic meteors or dust fragments outside the earth.
This "Stone Iron Meteorite" is 17cm long, 12cm wide and 2cm thick and weighs 781g. Its surface is covered with pits of different sizes and depths, and it also has shallow and long air marks. The surface is melted, the shell is melted and streaked, the color is uniform, the color is thick, and it is magnetic. It is well preserved, the melting shell is relatively complete, the surface is bright, the whole body is black and green, and it has high collection and research value!
In the meteorite market in mainland China and Hong Kong, the price has risen very fast, and the competition of rare and well-selling high-end meteorites has become increasingly fierce, which has increased tenfold in recent two years, while some ordinary meteorites have also increased by about one time. In September last year, a stone and iron meteorite with good appearance went to the Hong Kong market for auction, which actually hit a new high price of 36 million RMB. On January 15th this year, a stone and iron meteorite weighing 1365g was auctioned for 20 million HKD.
As the saying goes, "Stone Iron Meteorites" account for a very small proportion of all meteorites. Stone-iron meteorite is a mixture of stone and metal, so its scientific research value is also very high! In addition, meteorites have the function of ward off evil spirits, and are mostly used to protect houses and bodies. And the exquisite jewelry produced by meteorite processing is priceless. Therefore, it is inevitable to have a meteorite of good quality.
