A rare opportunity to own your own Muonionalusta Meteorite Shooting Star!
These unique earrings are hand crafted in solid Sterling Silver inset with rare Swedish Muonionalusta meteorite. The Muonionalusta meteorite is probably the oldest known meteorite, being billions of years old and named after the Muonio River. The inset Muonionalusta meteorite measures 20mm x 5mm and has a 3-micron coating of white gold to prevent any chance of oxidisation.
The Muonionalusta meteorite was discovered in Sweden in 1906 whilst two children were kicking at stones. One child suddenly struck an exceptionally heavy and rusty object – the children had accidentally discovered a meteorite. Having travelled through space for billions of years it crashed to earth around 1 million years ago.
The earrings are exceptionally stylish and are the perfect unique gift for anyone with a love of space, astronomy, geology or palaeontology.
Dimensions: 24mm x 8mm
The earrings will be sent to you beautifully packaged with a certificate of authenticity, meteorite information card, silver pouch and silver cleaning cloth.
Matching pendants are also available in this range, along with a selection of Muonionalusta Meteorite cufflinks.
