While thousands of meteorites hit the earth each year, most go unnoticed due to their small size and unfortunate landing. But this gargantuan hunk of the moon is simply impossible to miss. Weighing more than 30 pounds, the mesmerizing lunar rock is one of the largest meteorites in existence, and Christie’s has just listed it for private sale.

Moonrock ranks as one of the rarest substances on earth and we currently have less than 1,400 pounds on our home planet. This particular meteorite, known as NWA 12691, was part of a large meteorite shower which fell near the Western Saharan, Algerian and Mauritanian borders, and is presently the fifth-largest piece of the moon on earth. It’s expected to sell in the ballpark of £2 million ($2.5 million at current exchange) — a valuation of roughly $80,000 per pound.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
