The trainers made of meteorite that cost £10,000 – and the other space collectables that are out of this world and up for auction
What do you buy the man who has everything? A chunk of the cosmos is a good place to start.
What price a tiny sphere of iron formed in the molten core of an asteroid 4.4 billion years ago? Or Libyan ‘desert glass’ created 29 million years ago when a comet struck Earth’s prehistoric dunes?
From Christie’s auction halls to Ebay dealerships, the market for meteors is booming, as auction records keep tumbling.
Elon Musk, Steven Spielberg, Nicolas Cage, Yo-Yo Ma, Uri Geller and James Taylor are among the A-listers who have splashed fortunes on hunks of the heavens.
The crypto crowd go wild for glittering pallasite star falls, peppered with winking yellow ‘space gems’, or curved obsidian lumps of cosmic iron, baked beneath a tortured ‘fusion crust’ hewn by the heat of atmospheric entry that reaches a red-hot 1,800 degrees celsius.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)
Sir Elton John
“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
