Interesting question Mike. I've always wondered what the entire annual
international turnover of the meteorite trade would be? Including all sales
and trades both private and commercial. Many pieces would even be sold 2 or
3 times in the one year. I bet it would add up very quickly... $25M...
$50M... $75M... $100M+???????? Anyone want to take a guess?

I was wondering how many private collections are there in the million
dollar range? Any one care to make an educated guess?
Please don't mention any names.
