This Allende meteorite jewelry has been professionally set in an attractive 14k gold cabochon pendant.
The Allende meteorite is a well studied meteorite, and its cosmic implications have made it famous. It is not known for its beauty but rather its important scientific value. It is rich in nano-diamonds which are far too small to see - only one thousand atoms or so across. This meteorite also contains calcium aluminum inclusions, or CAI's. These are white in color and predate the age of our solar system.
It is so cool to think about how the material in the Allende meteorite contains pre-solar material - the actual stuff of stardust!
Pendant size: 1 3/8" L X 5/8" W X 1/8" D; Size of Allende meteorite: 3/4" X 1/2".
The Allende is mounted to a sterling silver disc and secured in the frame. 4 prong backing. Contains 1.6 grams of Allende meteorite.
Ships in an attractive jewelry box, information about the Allende meteorite and a Certificate of Authenticity. Free small quality 18" gold filled chain included.
Popular, vintage Explorer's Gift wrap available with messaging available.
This would make a very unique and great inspirational gift for someone who enjoys astronomy.
