Haoping Sui says, the studies of meteorites still have a lot of rooms for expansion and doubts, not all meteorites have healing or magic abilities. Nonetheless, for such a heavy meteorite to be exhibited in the land of Taiwan, and for people to witness it up close, is a very rare chance. In other countries, they would have to be seen through glass, and fences.
