‘Orion’ Meteorite Earrings
These contemporary design Sterling Silver Meteorite Earrings are designed and created with a 7mm sphere of Muonionalusta meteorite. It gives you a chance to carry a little piece of space with you wherever you go.
Over 100,000 years ago, a handful of these mysterious Muonionalusta meteorites impacted earth. Searches for the impact crater from the original shower have been in vain; the site where these specimens are found is in a remote area of northern Sweden, it is presumed they were carried there by glaciers.
These exquisite earrings comes in a elegant gift box complete with information card and certificate of authenticity.
The meteorites are not only extremely rare, they are almost always buried! To make finding the specimens just a little harder Swedish law dictates that a license must be obtained, and then those pieces buried in the perma-frost must be excavated by hand.
During ancient times meteorite was considered far more valuable than gold. Tutankhamen was found with meteorite daggers in his tomb and the ancient myth of Thor’s hammer, has been attributed to prized rare meteorite.
