Welcome to Meteorites Lab

Petrographic Laboratory of Meteorites (LPMCM) is the heart of the Canary Museum of Meteorites, and therefore we work on the study and analysis of meteorite samples, and also preparation and conservation of astromaterials for scientists and collectors.

Quite often we receive notifications from people who believe they have found a meteorite, and turn to us for study. For this reason, this center has a Research protocol to which they can receive their samples for study, certification and classification of astromaterials.

Then we leave the information regarding this research protocol and how to proceed to access the study of your samples.

On the pages of this website (top tabs) you will find all the information for the submission of samples to the laboratory.  If you need more information, do not hesitate to contact us.
