This particular meteorite was found in Argentina - the Campo del Cielo site. The crater was created an estimated 4,000 - 5,000 years ago. Even though this meteorite fell from the sky, its organic qualities make it seem right at home with other earthy, nature inspired jewelry. The hand matched meteorites are cast in place so the contours are subtly framed in 14k yellow gold. This pair of earrings comes with 14k yellow gold earwires and are perfect for adding a touch of unique style to your every day look.

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.
