The 22-pound stone that was used as a doorstop turned out to be a meteorite worth $100,000.
“It’s the most valuable specimen I have ever held in my life, monetarily and scientifically,” Sirbescu said in a press statement from the university.
The man who brought the meteorite to Sirbescu for examination wanted to remain unknown. Many people bring in rocks but they don't normally hear this kind of news.
