Rob Wesel recently tracked down the Grimsby space rock, which he's now putting up for sale on the Internet. He says it's unlikely that he'll get back the money he spent on the cross-continent adventure he took to find the 14.5 gram stone.
He figures he'll be lucky to get $2,500 toward a trip that cost twice that for him and a buddy. He's more hoping to trade his gem for a type of meteorite he's missing in his collection of several hundred.
I couldn't help thinking that some of our blog friends like Joe Huffman and Linoge might like to play their beloved word substitution game with this story. It could be fun.
