"I could tell right away that this was something special", Mona Sirbescu, a geologist at Central Michigan University said. Most iron meteorites are generally comprised of anywhere between 90 and 95 percent iron, with the rest made up nickel, iridium, gallium and occasionally gold.

The new owner lived on the farm a few years, and when he moved, he took the mystery rock with him.
Like the farmer, he just thought it was "cool to look at", and let his children take it to school for show and tell.
