Our heart pendant contains a slice of Muonionalusta meteorite, acid-etched to bring out the details of its crystal structure, and sealed with a protective epoxy to prevent rusting and wear. The pendant hangs from an 18" sterling silver chain necklace. Includes an information card and white gift box.
From the Information card:
"Muonionalusta Meteorite Pendant
This pendant contains a thin slice of Muonionalusta meteorite, the first pieces of which were discovered by two children in 1906. The Muonionalusta meteorite is an ancient fall – over one million years old. The meteorite exhibits an exceptional iron-nickel crystal structure called a Widmanstätten pattern, which only becomes apparent after the meteorite is sliced and acid-etched. The crystal pattern makes each slice from this meteorite unique and uniquely beautiful – a four billion year old gem of the early solar system!"
