The sterling silver setting subtly frames the contours of the meteorite and a moissanite. I love finding meteorites with a little notch that a moissanite can snuggle in to. This one is oriented in a unique way and I love how it hangs at a slight angle, but still feels balanced.
Just imagine where this meteorite has been! Perhaps it has seen your favorite planet up close or maybe even a distant undiscovered galaxy. When it eventually crashed to earth it shattered into fragments that all have unique shapes and textures.

Ever wonder what the difference is between a meteor, meteoroid and a meteorite?
A meteoroid is the space debris/particle, perhaps from an asteroid or comet
A meteor is the flash of light we see as it comes through the earth's atmosphere (shooting star) and the meteorite is what survives!
Most meteoroids are so small they can't make it through the atmosphere and are completely vaporized. This particular meteorite was found in Argentina.
