Looking for a Real Meteorite?

You want a Meteorite, but you're overwhelmed by the choices! Pallasites, Stony Irons, Tektites, H5 Chondrites... what does it all mean? These are the fun things you learn along the way while Meteorite shopping in person or online.

Unfortunately, there are also some boring choices to be made as you Meteorite shop: weeding out the true treasures in a market full of phonies.

How exactly do you spot real vs fake Meteorites?

The answer is simple for most of us. Find a reputable source that you trust, like Satin Crystals, and happily peruse their Meteorite Collection until you find the pieces you love.

For the do-it-yourself crowd that would like to know more about determining the authenticity of a Meteorite on their own, we have compiled a How To Buy Real Meteorites: 5 Tests You Should Do.

Hi Thor,

The mail has been really bad these days because of holiday delay plus covid. I hope it arrived soon and I will look at the tracking tomorrow.

The way to do meteorite test is by sending it to a special scientific meteorite lab for testing. Unfortunately I think those types of places may not be open right now.

If you send me a photo of what you have, I could possibly get an idea. Also if you know the source, such as who you got it from or where it is from etc. Let me know.

Thanks,
Lisa

Hello, the meteorite rocks i bought from you have not yet arrived here. So i definatley will need to clean them when they arrive.

I have a question. Is it possible for me to send you 3 meteorite rocks for verificaton?
If they are all real, you can take 1 and send 2 back to me. Knowing they are real and what they are.

Is that possible?

Thank you Thor

Thank you so much for the info! I’ll try the sea salt. The meteor is set with shungite and spinel.

Hi Susan, Moonlight is a great way to charge your meteorites, but I wouldn’t opt for the water for jewelry pieces set in metal. Instead I would place it on a crystal cluster or slab if you have one. Alternately, you could also place it in a bed of brown rice or sea salt. Let me know how it goes!

Reading up on meteorites you say to clean, charge and program them. What’s the best way to do that when the pieces are in jewelry with other stones set in silver? Rain water under a full moon a good way?

Hello Shishir, thanks for your email. Unfortunately, we will not be able to identify your meteorite online. You will want to find a local mineral or meteorite dealer in your area to help you out in-person.

You could also try to post on www.mindat.org where there are many skilled minerogists.

Sincerely,
Sheila Satin
