Meteorites are fiery gifts from the cosmos. Not all of the meteoroids make it to earth, but when they do they arrive in a variety of shapes, colors and often with very unique cosmic chemistry. Some meteorites take a very long time to travel from as far away as the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter, and sometimes even further. Until they reach the ground they wander as space orphans, celestial nomads alone in our universe.
This Sikhote-Alin has thumbprints called "regmaglypts" and are unique characteristics for this meteorite from Russia. In February, 1947, a large bolide brighter then our sun etched its way across the sky with a flowing smoky trail accompanied by a deafening sound of impact. The sound was heard for over 200 miles and its daytime entry through the earth's atmosphere allowed many people to witness its fall. As the meteor broke apart an avalanche of pieces rained to the ground in what is called a "strewn field."
A great many of these pieces have worked their way into collector's hands. This beautiful Sikhote-Alin meteorite was carefully wire wrapped in sterling silver and accented it with the perfect intricate bail. Each meteorite we chose to make as jewelry goes through a special process of determining if it is just the right shape, size and texture. This authentic, exotic space jewelry, suitable for men or women, ships with the story about the Sikhote-Alin meteorite, a Certificate of Authenticity, and an attractive jewelry box.
