One of the items taken is a meteorite believed to have come from the asteroid called ‘Vesta’. The specimen that is now gone was found back in 1925 in Zeeland.
It is one of only five meteorites that have
ever been found in the Netherlands, making it priceless. The fact that
it’s thought to be from ‘Vesta’, the second-biggest ‘world in the main
asteroid belt’ greatly adds to the unique factor.
percent of all meteorites discovered on planet Earth are suspected to
have come from ‘Vesta’. Museum employees are hoping someone will come
forward with information about the meteorite theft.
