Specializing in California/Nevada Meteorite-recovery, sample cutting, classification, formal nomenclature approval and brokering of cataloged meteorites.

Here is a link to a list of past accomplishments, such as, educational outreach, field research, published papers and articles by the Meteorite Recovery Lab.

If you have come to this website looking for help in getting your "find" identified, but it wasn't found in California/Nevada/Arizona - then here is a link to a highly competent colleague in Alaska who can be of some help in your efforts. My colleague's website will help you in identifying if your "find" is a meteorite. If you are convinced that you have a meteorite, AND it was found in California or Nevada, be advised that I operate with the same exact policy as stated in my colleagues website.

In the meanwhile, here is a link to some images of a rare California meteorite - the Los Angeles Mars Rock - a Martian basalt (shergottite) which makes it the first achondrite meteorite found in California.
