Yes, we charge a fee for out time and knowledge. By charging a fee for our service, we cut down on the number of rocks sent in for meteorite verification and we help fund our research.
We have made our fee very simple. Our fee of $30.00 per sample covers the verification as to whether or not your suspected meteorite really is one or just a rock (a meteorwrong?).
If you would like to have your sample mailed back to you, please include payment for return shipping.
We accept as payment either a check or money order made out to "Meteorite Research Center". Mail cash at your own risk. We do not accept credit cards as payment.
A payment must be received with a sample before we can process it.
