I have a full selection of genuine meteorites - rocks from space.

These are perfecting for collecting, outreach, educational props, gifts, jewelry-making, crafts, etc. I have specimens available in all budget ranges, starting at only $5. All Star Stuff members (this means you) get 20% OFF by using the coupon code "starstuff" at checkout.

I also have a wide selection of exotic materials that are not extra-terrestrial - minerals, crystals, trinitite, fossils, artifacts, semi-precious stones, and more.

I still have a couple of Mike's space rocks and I can vouch for their quality and authenticity! :cool:

Thanks for the kind words Erik. :)

That was early in my first few months of dealing meteorites. If I recall correctly, you have NWA 4293 or NWA 4528 chondrite stones. Those were from the very first batch of meteorites that I bought from Bob King. I bought a couple hundred of those little stones and they were spread far and wide. :)

If you are ever in Hilo, look up my friend Gary Fujihara and Big Kahuna Meteorites - he is the local man to see in Hawaii for meteorites.

Best regards,

MikeG

Thanks for the info, Mike- that name sounds familiar. Does he work at Imiloa? I get to Hilo every now and then.

Hi Erik,

Gary works at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy. He runs the Astro-Day Institute over there, amongst other things. He's a great guy and you'd really like him. He is also up at Mauna Kea a lot.

Yesterday, a package arrived in the mail from him, with a big bag of Kona coffee! It's called "Candies Big Island Hawaii No. 1". Ever heard of it? It's pretty darn good, I think I am hooked.

Gary has a wicked meteorite collection - probably one of the biggest on the islands.

Best regards,

MikeG

I'm not familiar with that brand but I love Kona coffee!

I remember now where I heard his name-Sam at Scope City knows him. I've probably run into him at the Mauna Kea Visitor Center if it's the same guy I'm thinking of. I seem to recall that he observes up there quite regularly.
