Here's a link to a meteorite that was found in Oslo, Norway. Hans Amundsen (NASA's expert on Mars meteorites) said that these type of meteorites
typically value $5,000 NOK (about $877 USD per gram). The value of meteorite is size, of course, but composition - namely rare earth metal content.
That's what he's looking for. He was also called in to analyze the Russian meteorite. All of them are being analyzed at the University of Oslo.
BTW, he is also the principal researcher that found "The Lost Continent of the Coast of Africa." Although it's been known about for a long time and
first reported in 1996 by the BBC. I believe that he's looking for a rare earth mineral contents on the Kerguelen Plateau in order to mine mineral
