Meteorites are true alien rocks that have crossed space before finishing their journey on our soil. Fragment of a meteor that landed on our planet, it came from different celestial bodies: mostly asteroids, natural satellites and planets. The rarest ones come from comets, Mars and the Moon. Meteorites are mentioned in several ancient texts, whether in Asia under the pen of the Persian scientist Avicenna or the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras in Europe. Its particular origin quickly made the meteorite an object of veneration, a mixture of fear, respect and devotion. Meteorite embodied the power of the gods and of the universe. Since Antiquity, its remarkable hardness has made it a material of choice in the manufacture of weapons and jewellery.
Rejected by the Catholic Church, which considered it an object of pagan superstition, meteorite stone has fascinated scientists for centuries, especially in Europe.
