What Are Meteorites Worth?

Answer

A meteorite is a meteor that survives its passage through the earth's atmosphere and a part of it strikes the ground. The worth of a meteorite differs largely depending on a number of factors such as the type, how rare it is, the recovery cost and the weight. The highest costing meteorite was sold at US$93,000 at an auction.

In most cases, a meteorite that has been properly classified and named by a recognized academic institution has a higher monetary value than an unclassified specimen.
