The collection realised £11,460 ($17,946) on August 20, with a 97g piece of Seychan meteorite found in Russia in 1967 selling as top lot, making £3,200 ($5,011)  - a 77.7% increase on estimate.

Elliott is a respected name in meteorite collecting, working as a full-time dealer as well as establishing a fine collection. Proceeds from the sale will enable him to continue the hunt for rare meteorite finds.

In October 2012, Heritage Auctions sold the largest piece of moon rock ever to appear at auction for $330,000.
