They aren't that uncommon, just not usually witnessed or found. A stony-iron fell in our field when I was a teenager, whizzed right over us while we were having a picnic in the yard. 2.35kg worth. Still have it.

2 kg's of meteorite can get you a lot of money.

It's not the money, it's a family artifact now. Not for sale.
