The above piece of green rock has a very noteworthy and curious history — that is, if scientists are correct as to its origin. It is a meteorite which was found in Morocco last year, and as its peculiar color might betray, it’s a rather one-of-a-kind find — it’s believed to have come from Mercury, the first such space rock of its kind discovered on Earth. Or, if not Mercury, from a hitherto unknown body somewhere in our solar system. Their estimate of its age? A whopping 4.56 billion years. source
