THE TRUTH ABOUT METEORITES
THE TRUTH IS NO ONE IS A COMPLETE METEORITE MASTER. THE STUDY OF METEORITES ARE STILL IN THEIR INFANCY. NO ONE PERSON CAN SAY EXACTLY WHAT EVERY METEORITE IS MADE UP OF.
We are proud members of the Kansas Meteorite Association. The KMA are pioneers in the field of meteorite testing. They are one of the leading facilities in the nation for their testing procedures.

IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE A METEORITE
How To Submit Your Findings.... If You think you have found a meteorite and would like to submit it to us for verification, there are a couple of ways of doing it:
1. You can send photos of the suspected meteorite to us via email below. There will be NO charge for picture review. Please include atleast four photos. ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO CHARGE we are privately funded and funds are tight at this point. I would love to do it for free but we receive many pictures and it would be absolutely impossible to review all of the pictures without hiring some help. SO ANY DONATION WOULD HELP TREMENDOUSLY. (You can use the donate button at the bottom of the page) Please take clear image photos of the suspected meteorite. Take several different angles, and point out any irregularities about the object. In your email please include your name: your best contact number: and where you found the object, (not the exact location, but a general area such as the town so we can possibly match it up to an existing strewn field.) If the object cannot be determined by the pictures/or there is a strong possibility that it may in fact be a meteorite we may ask for you to send it to us directly: This is discussed in option 2.
2. Option 2 - You can send the object in to us directly. There will be a NO charge for sending us the object. The suspected meteorite will be reviewed by a team of experts including professional gemologists. You will be responsible for mail insurance and return postage on your package. If it is determined to be a meteorite you will be contacted by one of our staff by phone to discuss your find and options. EACH SUSPECTED METEORITE WILL GO THROUGH OUR PATENT PENDING SIX STAGE TESTING PROCESS AT OUR TESTING FACILITY.
