Sirbescu says people ask her all the time if odd rocks they found are meteorites.
The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., corroborated Sirbescu's analysis that the 22-pound "rock" is, indeed, a meteorite, and is apparently the sixth-largest of its type to be discovered in MI.
"It's the most valuable specimen I have ever held in my life, monetarily and scientifically", she said.
Ms Siberscu still wanted a second opinion and sent off a slice of the rock to the Smithsonian Institution.
The retiree's old rock turned out to be a nest egg that could be worth $100,000, or possibly even more. The farmer then told him that he and his father saw it fall at night during the 1930s, adding that since the meteorite was part of the property, the man could have it.

The man had the meteorite with him since 1988 when he bought a farm in Edmore.
It has been named the "Edmore" meteorite after the town in which the farm is located.
Now the Smithsonian museum is considering buying the space rock, and it could fetch as much as $100,000, the release says.
"I said, 'Wait a minute".
The man said that the original farmer said he heard the meteorite come crashing down, "and it made a heck of a noise when it hit". A colleague there further analyzed the sample, including with an acid test to reveal the Widmanstätten pattern, a property of most iron-nickel meteorites that can not be faked.
The Smithsonian and a mineral museum in ME are considering purchasing the specimen. "I'm done using it for a doorstop", he said, "let's get a buyer".
Mazurek said that when he sells the meteorite, he'll donate some of the money to the university.
