The Macovich Collection of Meteorites

The Macovich Collection of Meteorites The Macovich Collection of Meteorites features the foremost collection of aesthetic iron meteorites in the world. Numerous private and institutional collections contain specimens from the Macovich Collection, including the Smithsonian, the Academy of Sciences (Beijing and Moscow), the American Museum of Natural History (New York) and the Natural History Museum (London).

James Taylor, Steven Spielberg, Nicolas Cage, Jerry Bruckheimer, Yo-Yo Ma and among the foremost art collectors in the world, Saud bin Mohammed al-Thani, have all acquired meteorites with a Macovich provenance. Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, The New York Times, USA Today and Smithsonian Magazine are among the publications that have written about the Macovich Collection and its curator, Darryl Pitt. Meteorite research enjoyed a tremendous boon as an indirect result of Macovich offerings. The media's extensive coverage of Macovich specimens sold in the first natural history auctions nearly twenty years ago became the catalyst to a legion of new meteorite hunters to search the world's deserts for meteorites, resulting in the recovery of hundreds of scientifically important specimens including dozens of meteorites from the Moon and Mars. Select meteorites with a Macovich provenance have been embraced as fine sculptural forms; an especially captivating specimen was named by Arts & Antiques magazine one of its "100 Top Treasures of the Year." Said legendary meteorite figure Robert Haag, "There is no one who has done more to popularize meteorites than Darryl....except me!"
