Allende Meteorite Jewelry Zamak Large Tribal Pendant Necklace
Allende Meteorite Jewelry Zamak Large Tribal Pendant Necklace

The Allende meteorite's astrochemistry makes it one of the most talked about meteorites in the world. These meteorites were a witnessed fall that fell to Earth on February 8, 1969, over the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.

Small white calcium-aluminum inclusions, commonly called CAI's, can be discerned in this meteorite jewelry. Allende is a carbonaceous chondrite meteorite consisting of a dark matrix and an all natural sprinkling of CAI inclusions. Allende meteorite jewelry is among the most uniquely sought after type of meteorite jewelry. Its delicate structure is difficult to cut and there is simply not a lot of jewelry that is ever made out of it.

Allende meteorite is famous for its chemical biological signatures and is one of the most studied meteorites. With detailed laboratory analysis isotopic elemental anomalies are found to be present which lend convincing evidence for a pre-solar formation of the CAI (white) material. Calcium-aluminum inclusions are billions of years old and are instrumental in helping scientists formulate a date for the age of our solar system. It is among the most primitive matter we can actually put in our hands, and is 30 million years older than the Earth and 287 million years older than the oldest known (to date) rock on Earth. The nano diamond grains present in Allende are almost entirely made out of carbon, the most important element for life on Earth, and represent the tiny fraction of material that survived the formation of the early solar system.

Pendant size: 1.75" W X 2 1/8" L (including bail) and 1/8" D. Allende meteorite size: 5/8" diameter. The back of the Allende meteorite is sealed for its protection and longevity, and the meteorite has a protectant coating on the front.

The Zamak pendant with its unique design was crafted in Greece and imported. Zamak has a base metal of zinc and alloying elements of magnesium, copper, and aluminum. It is popular in Europe and the Middle East.
