Abstract: Value of meteorites can be explained at least in two aspects. From the scientific point of view they are priceless objects, which can bring important information about the very beginning of the Universe. Because of their rarity anduniqueness, the meteorites often are extremely expensive in the term of a commercial value. This situation is used by dishonest sellers who offer fake meteorites. It has happened with the paleometeorite remnants, which were originallyfound in Cretaceous-Paleogene clay boundary in Lechówka, Poland. The so-called fake Lechówka remnants were offered by one seller on domestic online shops. All grains had certificate of authenticity that was included with the sold grains. In this paper we described the most common and diagnostic features, which can be easily applied to distinguish the original meteorite remnants from the fake ones.
