A mysterious rock like nothing on earth
This is anExtra-terrestrial Hypatia stonefound in upper Egypt 4 cm X 2 cm, Weighs (22 gram).
The original Hypatia stone was found in south Egypt in 1996. It was hardly more than a pebble, just 1.3 inches (3.5 centimeters) wide at its widest over an ounce (30 grams) in weight. But analysis revealed that the stone (dubbed "Hypatia" for a fourth-century female mathematician and philosopher) fit into no known category of meteorite. Now, a new study suggests that at least some parts of the stone may have formed before the solar system did.
