Allende Meteorite Jewelry Pendant Necklace Victorian Style
This Allende meteorite jewelry pendant necklace is sterling silver with an oxidized chain. It is done in a Victorian scroll work style design. Meteorites are rocks from space. We have made meteorite jewelry out of this beautiful and scientifically significant Allende meteorite.
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 it over the years, with a lot of the larger pieces ending up in museums or private collections.
The Allende meteorite is not known for its beauty but for its scientific value and cosmic significance. Allende is very rich in small nano-diamonds which are far too small to see with the naked eye. The Allende meteorite also contains Calcium Aluminum Inclusions, or CAI's. These are white in color and are easy to see. These CAI's predate the age of our solar system. In fact, they could have formed around an ancient supernova which, at the end of its life, spewed out material that eventually became incorporated into our solar system.
It is so cool to think about how the material in the Allende meteorite contains pre-solar material, actual "stardust."
Size: 1" W X 1 1/2" H X 1/2" D. Arrives with a Certificate of Authenticity, quality velvet jewelry box with information and 20" oxidized matching chain. The Allende meteorite was custom cut and hand set.
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.
This is quality, rare meteorite jewelry! It makes a wonderful gift for Christmas for someone who enjoys astronomy and the Universe.
