The quasicrystal that fell to Earth

The quasicrystal that fell to Earth

This is really interesting. I'd read before about the creation of quasicrystals though I still haven't read anything with real details (That I could still understand, of course.) but this is the first time I heard of the discovery of natural ones. Thinking about it I'm not very surprised that it would be found in meteorites. I wonder if they could also be formed at great depths in the earth.
