"Your presentation is fantastic Steven. But, before you spend any money on getting your specimen identified, be aware that this specimen is most definitely not a meteorite."

The amount of fakes on eBay :(

I would say about half of the Lunar Meteorites on eBay are straight up fakes. Often times the photos are of obvious terrestrial rocks and the descriptions include terms such as "unclassified" or "found in the mountains of Colorado." I've reported a lot of them but eBay never seems to remove them. I wonder how many people have paid several hundred dollars for one of these. Sad state of affairs .See More
