So as I mentioned here www.abovetopsecret.com... I found this meteorite in my yard one day. I can guarentee you it's no earth rock (it still has burn marks on it, so unless there's a volcano around here...it's a meteorite).

Now the question begs.....how much is it worth? Who should I sell it to?
E-bay is over here crying "me, me, me" but I don't know...

I think it depends how big it is, I think the one in NZ was like 3 pounds and worth 6,000US. You can always go somewhere to get it appraised or there may be someone local at a university or something who can do it for you...

Do you have a picture of the rock? I just saw a news story here in Los Angeles this morning of a meteorite that went through the roof of this New Zealander home and landed on their couch. The news story said it was worth about $6,ooo US. It was a little larger than the person's hand.

Edit: Looks like Jamuhn saw the same story.

Checking this out, looks like I could definately get a couple hundred. I hope.

I just wish I knew what it was made out of.

Why not keep the meteorite? You don't find meteorites in your backyard everyday.

Agreed... don't sell it. You get the money and blow it on something lame and now you have something lame versus a meteorite. Keep the rock. Its a nice conversation piece.

Its not a meteorite. It appears to be a meteorwrong.

No fusion crust is evident.

Identifying a meteorite.

Cut a corner off carefully and see if there is iron present, also check to see if a magnet will stick to it.

no, but if you live near a beach you can run a magnet just over the sand. the sand itself won't stick to the magnet, but anything that does woul be shavings and particles of meteors.
