Meteorites are the rarest collectible on earth! Just think, when you hold a meteorite in your hand, you have a piece of an asteroid, a comet, a moon, or possibly some unknown extraterrestrial body. The meteorite may have arrived from somewhere outside our solar system, it may have been ejected from our moon, or possibly it may be a piece of Mars. It may be composed of metals, or stone, or some combination of metal and stone. Rather than duplicating previously published material regarding meteorites, please go to David Weir's great educational meteorite studies web site, www.meteoritestudies.com, for more details plus photos and descriptions of numerous meteorites.
If you think you have found a meteorite, go to the Washington University site (http://www.wustl.edu/realities.htm) and read the information regarding most items people find thinking they are meteorites but are not. If you want to have your suspected meteorite tested, go to meteoritetesting.org and follow the instructions.
Yes, we conduct a business in meteorites; however, being a meteorite dealer does not mean that we do not honor the privilege of assisting with meteorite studies and offering the scientific community new (or old) material. John has collected meteorites for many years and is a member in good standing of The Meteoritical Society and the International Meteorite Collectors Association (#9322). He remains a collector first and a dealer second. He has been involved in meteorite acquisitions and trades with other collectors and with various museums, educational institutions, NASA, and other repositories within the USA and abroad. You may be assured that any meteorite you purchase from us is authentic and unconditionally guaranteed. We (actually John) love to discuss meteorites with anyone who wants to call or send an email.
Macro-size meteorite specimens are our specialty, especially witnessed falls. These macro specimens are sold by weight, are typically larger than micro-mounts, and usually have larger surface areas. For the serious meteorite collector, macro specimens have become one preferred method of collecting and are quite popular. They range from slightly more expensive to considerably more expensive than micros but the generally larger surface area provides a much greater opportunity to study the interior/exterior of the meteorite sample. And, of great importance, Dr. Carleton Moore, now retired from ASU, always encouraged me to obtain the larger surface area specimens as they could be tested to assure the owner that the meteorite actually came from the specifically noted location.
Every meteorite specimen we sell is accompanied with an information label which includes the official name of the meteorite, date of fall or find, classification, and location. Meteorites can easily become an obsession so be careful! You may get hooked on them.

- For those wanting a complete and up to day listing of meteorites, collections,
references, and most any information available related to meteorites, I can
personally recommend Jorn Koblitz's MetBase (Meteorite Information Data Base).
