The sterling silver subtly frames the contours of the meteorite and encases the beautiful labradorite. I just love the look of labradorite (like a galaxy!) paired with the meteorite. Wear this with a shiny sterling silver chain or choose to add a patina to the chain when adding it to your cart.
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.
