This little piece of outer space can be carried with you everyday. An out of this world gift for the man who loves his space. This Dog tag style necklace will adorn your neck with a piece of extra terrestrial history.
Over 100,000 years ago, a handful of these mysterious Muonionalusta meteorites impacted earth. Searches for the impact crater from the original shower have been in vain; the site where these specimens are found is in a remote area of northern Sweden, is it presumed they were carried there by glaciers.
Martha Jackson Meteorite And Silver Tag Necklace comes in a elegant textured presentation box complete with information card and certificate of authenticity.
The meteorites are not only extremely rare, they are almost always buried! To make finding the specimens just a little harder Swedish law dictates that a license must be obtained, and then those pieces buried in the perma-frost must be excavated by hand. We will provide a certificate of origin and authenticity with piece of meteorite jewellery.
Iron Nickel meteorites, like the Muonionsalusta generally start as the very core of a planet, the amazing Widmanstätten patterns (unearthly metallic grids in shimmering shades of grey and silver seen when the meteorite is sliced) are formed only in space. The molten centre of a planet’s core is cooled to form this metal at 1 degree per million years, then when the iron is removed the striking nickel crystal formations can be seen.
During ancient times meteorite was considered far more valuable than gold. Tutankhamen was found with meteorite daggers in his tomb and the ancient myth of Thor’s hammer, has been attributed to prized rare meteorite.
