Lunar Eclipse

Moon Rock Comes Dowm To Earth

A treasured piece of moon rock in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam museum is nothing but petrified wood, museum authorities have revealed. When the museum received it, they insured it for the present-day equivalent of 50,000 euros – but have admitted now that that it was "hardly worth 50 euros".

FOOTNOTE: Rock stir.
