Ankh Sterling Silver Meteorite Jewelry
The ankh, also known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata (Latin meaning "cross with a handle"), was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that means "life."
It also represents the concept of eternal life, as the Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest.
Meteorites are rocks from space. The meteorite in this jewelry is a NWA 869 (North West Africa). It is among the prettiest class of meteorites. It was discovered in 1999, near Tindouf, Algeria, Africa. This meteorite slice was carefully prepared and custom cut for this pendant. Its beauty can suggest to us the beauty of the firmament of the heavens. Meteorites are about seven hundred million years older than the oldest rocks on Earth, making them, in our brief lifetimes, seemingly “eternal.” The meteorite has been stabilized and there is velvet backing on the back of the meteorite portion of the pendant.
