Welcome to Cosmic Connection Meteorites! Take some time to look through my website and enjoy the images, people, and colorful stories inside. After many years of hunting, collecting and trading meteorites and related items, I've finally committed to the endeavor that is this website. In essence, this is a place where I can share with other interested and like minded people some of the adventures and experiences, and most of all, some of the amazing extraterrestrial rocks that I've encountered over the years. I will update this site through time as more finds, falls and adventures unfold. I hope you all enjoy.

Visit the "Meteorites For Sale " page to see if there is anything of interest.  Keep in mind and know that Provenance and Authenticity is of my highest priority, and  you can be assured that you are buying exactly what is represented. Many of the meteorites I will be offering are specimens I personally found in the field, and when possible, in-situ  photo's will be included with your specimen.
