Christie’s of London is putting a heart shaped meteorite under the hammer on Valentines Day.
Interested? Hurry then as bids are open from tomorrow, February 6.
“Christie’s website says that a meteorite penetrated the Earth’s atmosphere on February 12, 1947 – breaking into smaller meteorites and blazing over Siberia’s Sikhote-Alin mountains in a fireball “brighter than the sun.”
The heart shaped one is among the many smaller meteorites from the huge impact.
“But the “Heart of Space,” as Christie’s terms it, probably split apart at a far higher altitude. As a result, it’s somewhat more aerodynamic, and filled with regmaglypts or indentations”.
Check your pocket before bidding as Christie’s plans to bring the hammer down the third time, not before the Valentine is worth $300,000 to $500,000.
