A meteorite dating back 2.5 billion years and described as the "oldest antique ever seen" is expected to fetch £9,500 when it is sold.
The 8lb football-sized rock was one of thousands which thundered into the Earth during a huge meteor shower.
It was discovered embedded in farmland in Africa over 20 years ago.
It goes on sale tomorrow (Friday) with the relatively earthly price tag of £9,500 at the Guildford Antiques and Fine art fair in London.
Dealer David Wackett's unique collection of rare meteorites and fossils are of such visual appeal that collectors now regard them as modern sculptures.
The items are said to be some of most unusual exhibits ever seen at any antiques fair.

Why so cheap? You think because of the age it would be more expensive, not to mention it being space debris.
