Think you've found a meteorite?
Willamette Meteorite found in Oregon. The largest meteorite found in North America.
Every year the LSU Department of Geology & Geophysics is contacted by hundreds of people who think they have found, inherited, or purchased a meteorite. We are NOT able to issue any type of certificate of authenticity or proof that what you have found (inherited or purchased) is in fact a meteorite.
