The Egyptian Museum in Cairo has a Meteoric Iron Knife from King Tutankhamun’s Tomb.  Ancient Man would have thought Meteorites to be a gift from the skies or Gods.  Man made weapons like swords, knives, spears and arrow heads from meteorites.  Natural iron is not necessarily “native” to Earth since it rarely occurs on the Earth’s surface by terrestrial processes.
