This service is the best choice if you know or suspect your sample is the same as a meteorite that has already been classified with an official name and published in the Meteoritical Bulletin:

  • Sample Prep - Making of one 25mm probe mount required for microprobe analysis, and one petrographic thin section when needed. These remain with the Institute of Meteoritics for archival and future use.

  • Type Donation Processing & Management - NO TYPE DONATION REQUIRED

  • Microprobe Analysis - Specimen specific analysis determined by the classifying researcher and/or the microprobe lab manager. In some cases optical microscopy may be used in place of microprobe analysis if diagnostic pairing can be achieved to a sufficient degree of certainty.

  • Classification, Write-up & Submission - NOT APPLICABLE

  • Certificate of Pairing - If the sample is determined to be paired to an existing classification, a Certificate of Pairing will be created and issued for the paired specimen(s).
