Owning a meteorite is the only way that most of us Earthbound humans will ever be able to enjoy a close encounter with outer space. Meteorites are actual visitors from from alien worlds and have, on average, traveled about 250,000,000 miles to become part of your collection. The study of meteorites helps us understand how our own planet Earth, and the rest of the solar system, came into being. And there is something wonderful and inspiring about holding a piece of the cosmos in your hand. We actively support ethical meteorite collecting, meteorite research, and education.
