A little about myself.

  • Meteorites

    1992 - 2009

    In the Beginning

    I moved to Japan Japanese Meteorites in the winter of 1992 and stayed there for 13 years 6 months, during the year of 1995 is when I saw my first meteorite Japanese Meteorites, in a local museum / science park which was in Fukuchiyama city in the prefecture of Kyoto Fu New Meteorite Fall, Japan New Meteorite. I made enquiries to the staff working there, I wanted to know how and where I could buy one, they told me I had to buy from America, unfortunately they were not very helpful, so I started looking through some magazines in the reading corner of the buidling and I came across an advertisement for someone selling in America, a gentleman called Robert Hagg.Meteorites Fall 2016

    My First Purchase

    After a lot of thinking I decided to buy, despite a lot of opposition, I decided to take the plunge, I contacted a gentleman who I had never heard of at that time by the name of Robert Hagg Rare Meteorites I sent numerous faxes to Robert enquiring about 2 specimens the first was a 3980 gram Gibeon specimen and the other was a Sikhote Alin specimen approximately 3400 grams. After a detailed description by fax from Robert, I decided to buy the Gibeon meteorite. Which I have in my collection to date.

    1996 - 2009

    Branching Out

    During these chaotic years in Japan, My collection never went futher than the Gibeon specimen I bought from Robert Hagg Rare Meteorites, Until I returned to the UK in May 2009.

    Expansion of private collection

    During this period between 2009 and now was the first time I was able to expand my collection from the original Robert Hagg Meteorite Fall or Find specimen to now having a modest 114 meteorites in my collection, I have purchased from many world wide famous hunters & dealers in which I will go more into later.
