Meteorites are rare and valuable because most of them that reach planet Earth burn up when entering the atmosphere. Only in rare cases fragments of meteorites reach the earth's surface and land there in areas where they are protected against weathering. Most meteorites crash into the oceans.
In addition to the scientific significance of the meteorites and their use as collectable items, people know also numerous myths and traditons connected with these unique travelers from space. Metreorites should be lucky charms and accompany and support the active implementation of spontaneous impulses.
