$100K Meteorite Used As Doorstop

A Michigan man has an interesting 22 lb. space rock he’s been using as a doorstop since the late-1980s. After taking it to Central Michigan University to be analyzed, he found it was indeed a valuable scientific artifact. The meteorite has an estimated worth of $100,000. Reportedly, it crashed into Earth in the 1930s and was found by a simple farmer. The unnamed man inherited it when his family purchased the farmland where the meteorite hit.
