This is a carved sphere of Gibeon Meteorite that fell from the sky in prehistoric times in current day Namibia, Africa.

I created this charm pendant by treating it like a classic pearl pendant. I drilled a hole and made an 18K gold cap and post for the ball. I gave the cap a hammer texture similar to that of the meteorite. The cap and post were then given a dab of epoxy and put into place. I then added a gold jump ring for a chain.

The ball is about 12mm in size, a little less than 1/2 inch. It is a dark grey color with an interlocking crystal pattern.

The charm can be purchased separately, or with an 18K gold, 18" chain with lobster clasp.

One of a kind!

The Gibeon meteorites come from broken asteroid fragments or an exploded star and radiometric dating places the age at around 4 billion years old. They are composed of iron, nickel and small amounts of cobalt and classified as a fine octahedrite iron meteorite.

Because they are made of mostly Iron, the meteorite can rust. It should not be worn in water and given a coating of bees wax every now and then.
