The meteorite market is a big one.  We just didn’t know it was this big. The largest piece of the Zagami Martian meteorite that landed in Nigeria when it fell to Earth in 1962, was put up for sale by its owners on eBay. At the time it was considered one of the most valuable space rocks on the planet. Before the meteorite was even sold, planetariums were begging the future buyers to make available for loan.
