is LIVE! Meteorite Auctions Meteorite Auctions

We’ve been working very hard over the last year to bring to the meteorite community a brand new and perhaps better venue for collectors and dealers. We’ve asked, interviewed, brainstormed, argued, expanded and contracted ideas with many meteorite dealers and collectors about what the meteorite community really would like to see, and the one thing that kept coming up was authenticity. Fair price was second, and for dealers, listing and selling fees were in the top three things that needed some serious attention.

I want to personally thank everyone who has helped us bring this new site to a reality. Over the last few months I have personally had the pleasure to work with many dealers and collectors from across this wonderful community and they have been a great help with advice, ideas, and suggestions about bringing this site to life. I appreciate everyone’s patience while we worked on this behind the scenes so as to build it in such a way to address the single biggest issue regarding selling meteorites on the web. Trust!

Some of you already know of this site. Most of you don’t. But either way I think you’ll like this idea. It’s really a testbed for something much larger, and without you guys it will not work. Some of the things we have addressed…

1. Trust; To provide a safe and trusted environment to buy sell and trade AUTHENTIC meteorites on the web.
2. Price; To garner a fair market price for ALL meteorites sold on this site. This is not a race to the lowest price as Ebay is. Yet, the bargains will be automatic based on the laws of supply and demand and not artificially inflated or lowered due to price wars.
3. Cost; Free Listings to Dealers and Sellers (this included collectors who sell their collections or individual meteorites)

Requirements To Sell: Dealers must be referred by at least 2 other members. We tried an idea that maybe dealers should be allowed to sell by invitation only. This posed problems as anyone could invite anyone so we figured a compromise would be good. Similar to how the IMCA works, Dealers and Collectors who wish to sell on the site will be required to either be IMCA members in good standing and/or be referred by 2 other current site members. You need not be an IMCA member to join or buy, but to sell items you must meet these requirements.

Requirements to Buy: You must like meteorites… 😉

We hope that you will take a look, and browse the site. Join, and list some items. Try it out. If you don’t like it that’s ok, if you do like it great, and if you love the idea then welcome aboard!
