The meteorite in this meteorite jewelry is the famous Allende meteorite. It is so special because it contains white grains which are older than the age of our solar system. This material actually came from an ancient supernova explosion, older than 4.8 billion years ago! The supernova spewed out materials that eventually ended up in a space rock called a meteorite. The interest in this special meteorite doesn't stop there. It also contains tiny nano-diamonds. The Allende meteorite is in every sense of the word "stardust"!
The Allende meteorite created a huge fireball and then shattered into fragments and fell to Earth on February 8, 1969. It rained over an area near the town of Pueblito de Allende, Mexico. Townspeople, scientists and explorers have been collecting ever since and meteorite enthusiasts treasure it as jewelry.

Meteorites are believed to be small fragments of asteroids, broken off and ejected mainly from the asteroid belt. They are about seven hundred million years older than the oldest rocks on Earth, making them, in our brief lifetimes “eternal.”
Metaphysical lore: Meteorites bring energy from the universe. They ground creative and emotional energies. They help us to focus on our purpose on this planet. They are thought to encourage endurance, stamina and introspection.
