This stunning pendant is truly one of a kind. The sleek and sturdy 18k gold holds a chunk of smokey Sikhote-Alin meteorite, which fell onto the Earth on February 12th, 1947. This particular meteorite fell in the Sikhote-Alin Mountains, which are a mountain range in Russia, just Northeast of Vladicostok Siberia. The piece was crafted by a geologist from Vancouver who specializes in unique materials and precious metals. This piece in particular is rare, the meteorite exploded on entry and shattered on its crystal planes, giving it that unique quality. This beautiful piece of alien rock is such a wonderful reminder of the vast universe which surrounds us, and gives us a chance to remember our connection to it all.
