Older than the Earth

The stony meteorite Estacado is older than Earth. If you touch the dark, round spots, you can feel the solid particles from which the solar system formed more than four billion years ago. The flat surface of Estacado has been cut and polished, revealing tiny bits of iron mixed in with the stone.
