This pendant is made with a coloured resin setting containing small fragments of the Campo Del Cielo Meteorite
This is a famous and LARGE iron meteorite fall in Argentina
It was found in 1516 but is believed to have fallen thousands of years earlier
Many tons of iron meteorite fragments have been found over a wide area.
( the name of the meteorite 'Campo Del Cielo' literally means field of Heaven and refers to the iron fragments falling from heaven and landing in the fields)
The pendant measures 5.5cm in total including the bail and is strung from an 18 inch sterling silver chain
I have strung the pendant with a fossil Woolly Mammoth bead.
I like to make my jewellery EXTRA special. and this will give it that extra bit of magic and guaranteed talking point!
It is nicely boxed and labelled.
You will also receive a signed certificate of authenticity and an exclusive free gift - an illustrated A4 meteorite information sheet.
This was written for Jurassic Jewellery by Mark Ford - Secretary of the BIMS (British And Irish Meteorite Society) and gives a useful overview of meteorites.
It will offer no revelations to a dedicated meteorite buff, but will be indispensable for a complete novice.
