Our Four Leaf Clover Pendant contains a slice of Muonionalusta meteorite, acid-etched to bring out the details of its crystal structure, and sealed with a protective epoxy to prevent rusting and wear. The pendant hangs from an 18" Solid Sterling Silver chain necklace. Includes an information card and black gift box with magnetic closure.
From the Information card:
"Muonionalusta Meteorite Pendant
This pendant contains a thin slice of Muonionalusta meteorite, the first pieces of which were discovered by two children in 1906. The Muonionalusta meteorite is an ancient fall – over one million years old. The meteorite exhibits an exceptional iron-nickel crystal structure called a Widmanstätten pattern, which only becomes apparent after the meteorite is sliced and acid-etched. The crystal pattern makes each slice from this meteorite unique and uniquely beautiful – a four billion year old gem of the early solar system!"
