Regional police spokeswoman Anzhelika Chirkova told the news agency that the man, identified as a local resident of Chelyabinsk Region, was trying to sell 60 grams of the substance as meteor fragment through the Internet. The substance has been sent for testing in order to determine its composition and the possible health risks it could pose."
