Jarmo Moilanen Collection


I start collect impactites and meteorites in 1997. Althought I have been interested in rocks and collected them since I was a kid. It was in 1997 when I focus my collecting mainly to impactites and meteorites. One reason for that was that I'm also interested in astronomy.


Update 9 Oct 2010: All database pages are now open. However, lots of samples are not in the database yet. I will update database as fast as I can.


Meteorites are rocks from the space.
Impactites (or impact rocks) are rocks formed when asteroid or comet has impacted with Earth.
I have got some fossils during years of collecting rocks.

My collection of minerals contain mainly minerals from Finland.
