Hello, I'm Jens
and i'm addicted tometeorites :-)
I'm 36 years old, I am married and have two daughters of 3 and
I live in Neuleiningen, Palatinate, Germany. The past 15 years I have worked as
a headgreenkeeper on a golf course.
My passion for meteorites began in 2010 with a small Sikhote alin shrapnell
which I bought for my mineral collection. Shortly afterwards a NWAxxx as
occupying a stone meteorite. Since that time I was ‘infected’ by meteorites and
my meteorite collection has grown up to over 350 pieces, and I have developed a
fondness for NWA OC individuals.
Sometimes I cut the meteorites. I think it's always exciting to be able to take
a look into the interior of these stones, and imagine where this stuff comes
from and how it was created. I am particularly fascinated by unequilibrated
chondrite or strongly shocked stones. A further interest are impactites and
the meteorite craters of scandinavia.
I am a member of the german metlist.
My decision to want to join the imca explained by the fact that imca members
have helped me a few times. Whether it be botched deals, the acquisition of
meteorites or material-specific problems.
Observance of the coe I consider for a reputable handling with meteorites and
other collectors as a basis. I am happy to be part of the IMCA Community
and support this meaningful work.
