We are an international group of meteorite collectors consisting of amateurs and professionals from forty-five countries. Our mission can be summed up in one word,


If members wish to sell or trade meteoritic specimens, those items must be 'actually and exactly what is claimed' (Merriam-Webster-Dictionary). Our members adhere to the highest standards of meteorite identification and proper labeling practices. The membership maintains this high standard by monitoring each other's activities for accuracy. It is every IMCA member's responsibility and pleasure to offer help and assistance to fellow members in order to ensure specimens are genuine. A dignified and private 'forum' (mailing list) is provided for members to ask questions and engage in discussions.

Non-members also benefit from our expertise. Meteorite identification assistance is offered to new eBay sellers and to persons writing the Association. Meteorite education is promoted via the web site and volunteer speakers (list -> coming soon).
