About the Meteorite Catalogue

The database may be searched in two ways:

  1. Meteorite name search

    The system will attempt a partial or complete match of an alpha-numeric string against all meteorite names in the database.

    For example starts with "allan hills" will return all 1799 meteorites from the Allan Hills site.

    Contains "hills" will return 2069 names, including all 1799 Allan Hills meteorites, plus an additional 270 whose names also contain the string hills (such as Chico Hills, Stewart Hills 91800 and MacAlpine Hills 87300 to 88204).

  2. Advanced search

    Select or enter criteria in any or all fields to return a list of all meteorites matching those criteria.
