Geoffrey Notkin: Man-About-Meteorites

This past January I had the privilege of speaking on the phone with Geoffrey Notkin, a genuinely nice and most definitely knowledgeable fellow.

Notkin, has been very well known in meteorite circles for some time but has more recently become rather well-known to Travel Channel watchers in an episode of Cash & Treasures which focused on Notkin's Meteorite Adventures as well as currently to Discovery Channel watchers due to his being one half of the cast of Meteorite Men.

Well before his more recent introduction to the general public he was already a busy fellow with a variety of projects and the talents to match them as evidenced by his personal website Notkin.net.

He also has a column on the Geology.com website entitled Meteorwritings as well as his own Meteoriteblog.

Of greatest particular person interest to me in regards to Notkin, at least at present, is his Aerolite Meteorites business to which I have consigned my large Sikhote-Alin meteorite for sale which you can view HERE.

As you may have noticed the price is not posted on the page and that is so that folks don't have a coronary when they read it as it is being offered for an amount that is not the sort of money most of us possess, including me!
