Spoken by somebody who is obviously out of touch:

?The skill level that some collectors have to get stones out of Africa
rivals that of drug dealers,? says Dr. Harvey. ?It?s clear that
meteorites are so valuable to these collectors that they?re more than
happy to get them and worry about the cost in terms of legality later

More of this drug dealer crap.

Some people will never learn. Cutting down other markets will not build up the case for more Antarctic funding. Collaboration is where it is at.? This latest falls have demonstrated this handily!? It appears a balance was struck and now we have out-of-touch, old-school thinking creeping out of nowhere when it is totally unnecessary.?

The meteorite market would be considered near pristine if compared to other markets.? One just needs to look at the gemstone, fossil and artifact markets to conclude this.?

Happy Hunting,
