The really exciting outcome of this research is that we were for the first time able to demonstrate conclusively that there are typical trace elements such as cobalt and germanium present in these beads, at levels that only occur in meteoritic iron,” Professor Thilo Rehren of UCL Archaeology, Qatar, said in a statement. “The composition of the beads is consistent with a meteoritic origin of the metal.

I find this quite interesting.
