METEORITES FOR SALE

I buy, and sell meteorites. If you wish to sell, or to purchase a meteorite, go to: AMERICAN METEORITE SURVEY Est. 1979 http://www.geocities.com/american_meteorite_survey

If your find is genuine, I will make a fair offer on it for an outright purchase, or I can list it at a very modest sales commission and obtain the best price for you.

LASTLY, WORDS OF CAUTION... In buying meteorites the rule is KNOW THE SOURCE! There are many things being touted at various sites and auction sites as meteorites when in fact they are not. This is especially so with regards to the extremely rare lunar and martian meteorites. Though the more common meteorite types are fairly easy to recognize for anyone with a degree of expertise, this is not so with regards to lunar and martian meteorites. These often command many hundreds to thousands of dollars per/gram and thus represent a very considerable investment. Therefore it is important to know the source, and the integrity of the person selling such specimens. It is strongly advised that one not purchase any supposed lunar or martian meteorites unless the mass from which the sample came is recognized as such by the Meteorititical Society, an association of legitimate scientists dedicated to the study of meteorites. An official list of all of the known lunar and martian meteorites can be found in their Meteorite Bulletin... and if it does not appear there, then it is most likely not what the seller claims it to be.
