"A 1,000 year-old ancient Buddhist statue which was first recovered by a
Nazi expedition in 1938 has been analysed by scientists and has been
found to be carved from a meteorite. The findings, published in
Meteoritics and Planetary Science, reveal the priceless statue to be a
rare ataxite class of meteorite."
