Full Product description
Take a slice of natural history with you everyday. This talking point piece is a beautiful example of the uniqueness showcased in the meteorite collection. For that someone who has everything give them something out of this world.
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 Rectangular Necklace comes with a 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.
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.
