Later, the man found out the humble doorstep rock actually worth a whopping $100,000 dollars as it is 88 per cent iron and 12 per cent nickel that is very rare to find on earth. And that's exactly what happened to a lucky guy in MI. However, she has never examined a rock that has turned out to be an official space rock, until now.
The story started in many years ago when the current owner of the meteorite bought a farm in Edmore, Michigan and saw the large rock that was used as the door stop.
A man in MI had a rare meteorite in his house, but he didn't know it.

To test her suspicions, Sirbescu immediately began examining the properties of the iron, such as its magnetism, weight and composition.
Geology faculty member Mona Sirbescu who examined it under X-ray fluorescence said it was the most valuable specimen she ever held.
Ms Sirbescu determined the specimen to be potentially worth $ 100,000 - that's approximately Rs 74 lakhs!
To accurately ascertain the origin of the stone, a piece was sent to the Smithsonian institution in Washington. Typically, meteorites tend to look rather different from Earth rocks because they lack quartz and do not typically contain holes or vesticles. As the new owner of the property, the man was told that the rock was a part of the property and that he could have it. He and his father dug it out the next morning and it was still warm. Sirbescu said. The Smithsonian has named the rock Edmore meteorite and is considering buying the meteorite so it will be displayed later.
There's now a bit of a scuffle over who will buy the meteorite - both the Smithsonian and a mineral museum in ME are considering purchasing the incredible find. The man didn't want his name to be out but promised 10 percent of the profits for the earth and atmospheric sciences studies.
