About Meteorite, Mineral & Fossil Gallery
Welcome to Meteorite, Mineral & Fossil Gallery, owned and operated by Charlie Snell. Prospector and rock hound for over 25 years, Charlie opened the gallery in 1996 after starting the business at the Tesuque flea market. As a full-time passion and career, Charlie prides himself on finding many pieces on his own. His extensive travels have led him to Chile, Namibia and China. Enthusiasm and knowledge from the field spills into the gallery as one of Charlie's main goals is educating people about saving fossils and finding meteorites.
A spectacular collection of great beauty, our gallery is an educational mecca for all ages. Visitors will find a comprehensive collection of the many varieties of meteorites as well as a fossil room set up in a geological time line. Dinosaur art, bronze statues, singing bowls and jewelry absorb the senses. A striking collection of gongs from Burma, India and Tibet bring a unique sound to the gallery.
