CUSTOMS; IMPORTANT INFORMATION


Shipments cannot generate invoices or payments at the destination, to avoid this it is very important to do things well in the DECLARATION OF CONTENT AND VALUE FOR CUSTOMS.

For this purpose, when you send your samples, the content must be declared as follows.

CONTENT; SAMPLES OF MINERALS FOR STUDY.

DECLARED VALUE; 3 €UROS / $ 3.

Never exceed this value, since the content is still unknown as well as its real value, and this must be adjusted to the simple customs procedure.


In the event that the shipment generates some type of invoice or payment at destination, it will be communicated to you for the payment of the same. Otherwise it will be returned to origin.


SPANISH LEGISLATION.

The reception and analysis of rock samples in Spain is totally and absolutely LEGAL. There are no destruction of rock samples, nor are there any confiscations. Geology, in all its branches (research, science, collecting, trade, export or import) are guaranteed by Spanish laws.

Welcome to Meteorites Lab

Welcome to METEORITES LAB, the private petrographic laboratory of José García (The Meteoritical Society member #5976), for petrographic studies, and also preparation and conservation of astromaterials for scientists and collectors, and classification of new meteorites in The Meteoritical Bulletin. Quite often I receive notifications from people who believe they have found a meteorite, and turn to me for study. For this reason, there is a Research protocol to which I can receive your samples for study and classification of astromaterials. Then I leave the information regarding this research protocol and how to proceed to submit your samples for analyses. Curation services are also offered for the preservation, documentation and preparation of samples.
