This is a stunning little piece of jewellery. A solid silver heart has been inset with a piece of real iron meteorite. Measures 12mm from top to bottom. What could be more romantic than to give your valentine a real piece of shooting star! The meteorite in the centre is a tiny but genuine fragment of the Campo Del Cielo meteorite. The Campo Del Cielo is a famous Octahedrite iron meteorite that fell in large amounts in Argentina between 4000-5000 years ago.
An iron meteorite is basically the molten iron core from a failed planet of some kind. No-one knows exactly where any iron meteorites originate, but isn’t it magical to think that they are the exploded core of an unknown planet many millions of miles away?!
The heart has been strung from an 18 inch sterling silver curb chain, and boxed in a high quality jewellery box.
You will also receive a signed certificate of authenticity and also an A4 colour meteorite information sheet.
