Meteorite may not be from Mars, but it’s still out of this world


This unusual meteorite is 4.4 billion years old and was first discovered in 1836 in Namibia, Africa, although native inhabitants knew about it before then.  Most specimens show flight markings and evidence of a violent atmospheric breakup. Our meteorite has a beautiful, fine octahedrite etched pattern.  We have several rings and pendants available or you can come in and view our raw samples and create your very own one-of-a-kind piece of meteorite jewelry.
