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.

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.
