Yes, there is - an "OLD" archive and a "NEW" one:

Hardly anyone of us can do without:
a) O.R. Norton's Rocks From Space, 2nd edition, 1998.
b) Harry McSween's Meteorites and Their Parent Planets, 2nd ed., 1999.
c) Joel Schiff's and/or John Walter's quarterlies of meteorites.
d) The British Catalogue of Meteorites by Dr. Monica Grady,
5th edition + CD-Rom.

P.S.: By the way, several of our list members (like Ginger or myself)
are also keen amateur astronomers with subscriptions to Sky & Telescope
and other astronomy journals, or have a telescope. Mine is a C-8 with
a C-5 mounted piggyback.
