Meteorites may be the only truly extra-terrestrial items it is possible to find, buy or own on Earth.

Their rarity has created a global trade, fed by a fascination with these dark rocks from outer space. Most meteorites on the market come from Morocco, where the inky-black rocks are easier to spot in the arid mountain landscape.

Nomads welcome these "gifts from the sky" and sell them to dealers and researchers.

However, the prices obtained by Moroccan nomads in the High Atlas Mountains are a fraction of those in the fashionable rock and crystal shops in Europe.
