S A H A R A G E M S was founded in 2008.
I have been collecting Libyan Desert Glass since the year 2000. At that time I was living in Cairo and had been offroading countless times in the Western Desert. In addition to Desert Glass, I also collected amazing Pseudomorph stones from the White Desert north of the Farafra oasis in the Western Desert of Egypt. When I returned to Switzerland in 2008, my passion for Meteorites started after I've met two Swiss meteorite collectors at a mineral show in Berne.
The passion for these stones continued to accompany me while I was living in Kosovo. After a few years in Switzerland, I have been living now since September 2019 in Jakarta, Indonesia. I only work together with absolutely trustworthy collectors and sellers worldwide. All the specimens I offer are genuine and are delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity. I've sold thousands of Meteorites, Libyan Desert Glass and many other stones the last 12 years. Some of them to world renowned Universities and Institutions.
As a member No. 8629 of the IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association), I commit myself to adhere to ethical and professional guidelines when trading meteorites in particular. I have been selling on Ebay and now also on Etsy for more than 10 years.
