Hunting for metorites

By Webmaster | September 1, 2007

Man with a big metoriteMeet Steve Arnold. He tows a custom-built metal detector behind a four-wheeler looking for meteorites. In October of 2005, he hit the jackpot and found one that weighs in at over 1400 pounds! He values the meteorite at greater than $1 million, so his time was well spent!

Arnold has pioneered a new research technique for finding meteorites and has several teams operating in different meteor fields across the U.S. Maybe there is a larger specimen in his future.

    I have a few specimens of what I believe are metorites. They have been confirmed as being all metal. Please advise.
