Thanks for taking time to check out my new meteorite blog!
I obtained my first meteorite specimen along with a a custom knife made by Ken Largin that incorporated meteorite in the blade. The specimen is identified as a small Campo del Cielo, although it doesn’t look like any Campo I’ve seen before. I kept the knife and the specimen on display for several years before I decided to see if I could obtain any other meteorites and start a collection.
Fast forward to 2017 when I did some web searches for meteorites and to my surprise, I found a thriving collector market. After doing some research, I decided to buy a small Silhote Alin specimen and I was hooked.
Since then, I have added many specimens to my collection, and I have been active in the meteorite community through social media. I am also a member of the American Meteor Society and hope to join other organizations in the future.
This blog will be a resource for anyone interested in meteorite collecting. I will share links to topics of interest, collector resources, and information about my own collection. I look forward to hearing your comments and questions. Until then, happy collecting!
