What Started It All My Meteorite Obsession:
It all started way back in August of 2007 when my girlfriend bought me my first meteorite. From there I started my first meteorite site MeteoriteWatch.com to showcase my meteorite and new found hobby. The hobby turned into and addiction and the addiction turned into a full blown obsession!
The Popularity Of Meteorites
Meteorites are ever increasing in popularity. Over the last few years more and more people are realizing the potential of meteorites. Intrinsically speaking meteorites are one of the very few things on this planet that ALL people can relate to. I don’t know anyone that isn’t fascinated by a meteorite once they hold one in their hand. There’s something about meteorites that just make you “want” to hold it, and it give you some sense of secret knowledge that only you know when you hold it. Besides that, meteorites are just plain cool! They’re from space!

Meteorites As Art
Many people view meteorites with an artistic eye. Meteorites are beautiful pieces of art from space and some sell for massive amounts of money. As meteorites grow in popularity so will this area of the industry. Bonhams’ New York natural history auctions off meteorites for as much as $105,000.00. This is a huge amount of money for a rock from space.
The Demand For Meteorites Is High
As the popularity of meteorites grows, so too does the price. The are only so many meteorites on the planet, as more and more people buy meteorites, the supply will dwindle, demand will grow and the price for your average iron, or pallasite meteorite will rise substantially. These treasured rocks from space are highly sought after by collectors and dealers alike and the price is only going to rise as more and more people buy them up.
