Space rocks for sale


If you think diamonds are the only rocks that can set you back thousands of dollars, think again. Auction house Bonhams will auction a number of meteorites on April 16, including the "Valley of the Sky" iron meteorite (pictured) found in Argentina, valued at $40,000.

The meteorites to be auctioned belong to the Macovich collection

diamonds, in common tongue, are often referred to as "rocks." Figure of speech, y'know.
