>Any hallucinations of "price fixing" are worthy of a hash pipe.

my two cents as a buyer: price fixing isnt something that requires multiple
parties to be involved in, given the relativly small and exotic nature of
the buisness / hobby of meteorites. If a dealer buys all of a particular
find, then they have the ability to largely circumvent normal market
dynamics and fix the price of a stone at any arbitrary number so long as it
isnt TOALLY unrealistic.

Rare diamonds are few and far between, but if you want a 5 carat, internally
flawless, D color diamond, and you dont like a dealer's price, you can just
go to the next one of many dealers that can offer similar product. You cant
do that with alot of meteorites. Your choice is to either pay the price, or
not have a specimin in your collection
