Priceless Meteorite From The Asteroid Vesta Got Stolen

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.

Approximately 5 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.
