Meteor-wrongs

Meteor-wrongs

Another photo gallery of the usual suspects. Over the past decade, various people have contacted me asking for help in getting their “meteorite” identified. In recent years, what with meteorites being mentioned more in the media, there isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t get asked, “How much is my rock worth?”. But […]

HARRIMAN (of)

HARRIMAN (of)

The Harriman file is much bigger than the others with few pictures but many letters detailing a long, convoluted and difficult negotiation with many players. It was carried out by an associate of Oscar Monnig, who goes by the name of Vega or Bunch, not his real name according to Dr. Ehlmann, a resourceful person […]

IMCA Insights – The Munich Show

Every year I visit Mineralien Tage in Munich to meet meteorite friends and, above all, see many new meteorites. There are hundreds of tables with tons of minerals, jewelry, and fossils. Among them on these tables are hidden meteorites. This year I am again seeing much less material than in previous years. Many people were […]

Edeowie Glass Revisited

Edeowie Glass Revisited

I do not usually watch the programs on television about alien from the past that have landed on Earth. But I was changing channels recently and found myself at one of those programs. After just a few minutes I had heard several wrong statements and enough bad conclusions drawn from unrelated facts to last me […]

Romero H4

Romero H4

Earlier this year Arizona State University released about a hundred surplus thin sections. This was through a trade with meteorite dealer Anne Black. I bought a few of these slides from her. I chose the only Romero H4 she had because it had an inclusion. The write up in the Meteoritical Bulletin Database gives only […]

Alain Carion’s “New” Ivoirites

Alain Carion’s “New” Ivoirites

Ivory Coast tektites (“Ivoirites”) have long been the most difficult tektite to obtain. To say “impossible” would not be far off the mark. Only a few hundred have ever been recovered, and given their homeland’s propensity for war and strife, it has been decades since anyone has gone there with the purpose of searching for […]

Ensisheim Show Report by Martin Goff

Ensisheim Show Report by Martin Goff

The annual Ensisheim show is the nearest meteorite show to me in the UK and is somewhere that I had been intending to visit for many years. I had vicariously enjoyed the show from looking wistfully at all the photos and videos that were shared every year and had also been subject to much persuasion […]

Tektite Of The Month

Ivory Coast Tektites

Ivory Coast Tektites

by Alain Carion The tektites of Ivory Coast are without a doubt the rarest of the tektites in any collections. They have been found while searching for gold, particularly in gold placers, but local shamans and tribal chiefs usually kept them and prized them as amulets with great powers. They are sometimes called “Ivoirites”; they […]
