Experts have determined1 that a meteor that landed in southwest China's Yunnan Province is as old as the solar system, reports Yunnan.cn.
 
云南网报道,专家判定坠落在云南的一块陨石其历史与太阳系一样古老。
 
 
Xu Weibiao, chief scientist at the Purple Mountain Observatory2 of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, examined a sample and concluded the meteor was from the asteroid3 belt between Mars and Jupiter and it formed 4.5 billion years ago, before the sun was born from a nebula4
 
Xu says the meteor has great scientific value as it has not been contaminated and holds the secrets of the asteroids5 in the solar system. 
 
Xu has filed an application to the international committee to officially name the meteor after the Yunnan village where it was found. 
 
On the evening of June 1, a meteorite6 blazed across the sky and struck Mengzhe in Yunnan Province. 
 
Villagers have been gathering7 pieces of the meteor and selling them to collectors. 
 
Yunnan.cn has reported that a 0.8 kilogram piece sold for 160,000 yuan.
