February has already started and we are still talking about chilly winters. Instead of being romantic and enjoying the morning view, we all are cursing the fog that is going to make you late for the work.
For some people, it can be a good excuse, but that’s not the real point because you should be making plans to surprise your special person instead of trying to find excuses for coming late at work (again!).
Well, in case you are looking for something unique to gift your love, you should take a look at it. There is an online auction held from February 6 to 14, featuring 320 million-year-old rare astronomic item.
What’s the significance?
Usually, people gift chocolates, flowers, a necklace on the valentine’s day. Some might even go on a fancy dinner, just to make their lover feel happy. But, this year someone might gift a rare heart-shaped meteorite.
Yes, 320 million-year-old meteorite, in a heart shape. This makes it a rare item. Someone lucky might get this gift as the token of love from their lover, to show how much they are loved by their significant other.
Tell me more about the meteorite!!!
It was mentioned that the meteorite entered the earth’s surrounding February 12, 1947. The gravitational pull of our Earth turned it into a huge fireball. And it appeared to be brighter than the Sun.
Soon, it began to break off and its pieces started to fall as it sailed over the Sikhote-Alin Mountains in Siberia. Also, the shock waves that were formed on its impact resulted in a collapsed chimney, shattered window glass and uprooted trees.
Though, a girl might not be able to wear this heart-shaped meteorite as jewelry as it weighs 10 kilos and measures 9 inches from its widest point.
Where is this auction?
This auction is hosted by a London based auction house called Christie’s. In this, they are featuring a Russian meteorite know as “The Heart of Space.” Just like its name this rare astronomic piece is also very beautiful.
Back in 1947, this meteorite created a huge fireball over the Sikhote-Alin Mountains in Siberia. Later, in 1957 the Siberian government also included it as the part of their history.
In case you are making plans to buy this heart-shaped meteorite, remember it is a rare item from outer space. It is going to cost a lot, Christie’s think that the bid might reach the high price tag somewhere around $500,000 (Rs 3.5 crore).
Woohh!!! That’s really expensive, most of us can’t afford it. But don’t worry it’s not about gifts, February is the month to make happy moments with your loved ones.
