Heart-shaped meteorite up for Valentine's Day auction
A heart shaped meteorite is going up for auction for Valentine’s Day.
According to CNN, the meteorite fell to earth as part of a larger mass of rock in Siberia on Feb. 12, 1947.
The iron meteorite is expected to fetch between $300,000 and $500,000 in the auction, reports CNN. The high price is because of the rock’s unique shape.
Christie’s, the British auction house selling the meteorite, is calling it the “Heart of Space.” The auction began Feb. 6 and appropriately ends on Feb.14, Valentine’s Day, reports CNN.
