The space rock continued to perform that job for decades, only recently being identified as something very unique and valuable. Weighing 22 pounds, it's the sixth-largest recorded find in MI - and potentially worth $100,000, according to CMU.
"It's the most valuable specimen I have ever held in my life, monetarily and scientifically", CMU geology professor Mona Sibescu told CNN.
Siberscu still wanted a second opinion and sent off a slice of the rock to the Smithsonian Institution. He says the farmer who sold him the property told a tale about his father seeing it fall from the sky and then digging it out of a hole in the 1930s.

The Smithsonian and a mineral museum in ME are considering buying the meteorite - now called "Edmore" - for display, according to CMU.
