Since ancient times, meteorites have the functions of town house, avoiding evil, prosperous wealth, health care, avoiding danger, transporting and prolonging life. In addition, meteorites have the dual value of collection, utilization and scientific research. As a result, meteorites have received the favor of many collectors and researchers, and the market price of meteorites has been rising.

The boundless universe, the vast boundless, there are too many unknown waiting for human to explore. Foreign stone for a long time, referred to as "day" of meteorites because of high scientific value has been many astronomers and geologists. Nowadays, meteorite collection hot worldwide, can collect meteorite collector is a status symbol. All over the world can be divided into pallasite meteorites, aerolite and three iron meteorite, including pallasite because of its unique historical value and scientific value is the collection of the newly rich.
Arough statistics, each year about 500 meteorite crashed into the earth, can find only 20, therefore extremely rare and expensive. These alien stone "day" has a very important research value, because of his strange shape and comes from the universe, added a bit more mystery, become people rushed to collection and ornamental.

The pallasite under high power magnifying glass observation, there is a clear crystal particles. Pallasite contains a large number of rich information of celestial bodies in the solar system formation evolution, their experimental analysis will help to explore the mystery of the solar system. Through the determination of various isotopes of elements content in meteorites, the age of rocks can be calculated, so as to study the solar system began to form all kinds of information. Pallasite also can carry to asteroids and planets, such as the large moons or comets (or bodies of the original information, so very have scientific research value.
