Meteorite with Accent
The ring shown is a titanium ring with a
inlay of genuine Gibeon Meteorite that fell to Earth in
prehistory. The meteorite was discovered in Namibia in
South Africa in 1838. It has a unique crystalline grain
structure called Widmanstatten lines that were caused by the
meteorite slowly cooling over millions of years as it hurtled
through space. It is estimated to be over 4.6 billion years
old, slightly older than the Earth itself! The government of Namibia has stopped export of the
meteorite, so it will become more rare as the years go by.
It's a great mix of ancient and contemporary. This is
truly a work of art and history available for your finger.
Can be done in Regular domed Profile or Flat and has the
signature V shaped grooves between the meteorite inlay and
