Meteorites are stones of extraterrestrial origin that have survived the fall through Earth’s atmosphere. They have long been imagined to have supernatural powers. The ancient Chinese considered meteorites to be sacred stones, and the Tibetans knew them as vajra stones, associated with the fiery power of creation. Perhaps the most holy Muslim site in Mecca, said to be a gift from God. Thousands of meteors collide with the Earth every day, but only a tiny fraction reach the ground without completely burning up. The three types of meteorites of greatest metaphysical interest will be considered here-Nickel-Iron Meteorites, Chondrites and Pallasites.
