The Fukang Meteorite
Back in the year 2000, an incredible meteorite weighing 2,211 pounds was discovered near Fukang, a city located in the northwestern region of Xinjiang, China. Named the Funkang meteorite, it was identified as a pallasite, a type of stony–iron meteorite. With 4.5 billion years in the making, its golden olivine mixed with silvery nickel-iron to create a stunningly beautiful mosaic effect.Pallasites are extremely rare even among meteorites (only about 1% of all meteorites are this type) and Fukang has been hailed as one of the greatest meteorite discoveries of the 21st century.
It has since been divided into slices which give the effect of stained glass when the sun shines through them. It is so valuable that even tiny chunks sell in the region for $40 to $60 a gram. An anonymous collector holds the largest portion, which weighs 925 pounds.
it is my birthday today! another year wiser. it’s weird when you pass 21! i feel like everyone bulids themselves up for that year then you turn 22. it’s interesting. but i feel comfortable saying im 22 rather than 21. i felt like it suited me better. that sentence is in past tence because whenever anyone asked me how old i was i would say ‘21 but i will be 22 soon!’ haha i was tired of being 21!
There are seven chakras that go up the body. Each pool of energy has a purpose, and can be blocked by a specific kind of emotional muck.
i think it’s so funny when girls my age with babies take pictures with themselves and thier 3 month old baby, and the baby is giving that dumb face with thier mouth open looking across the room. and the girl is like oh my baby loves me! hahaha im sorry that sounds rude it just makes me giggle…epscially when the baby is so young and has no idea what is going on! hahaha
