    Muonionalusta Meteorite Barrel Pendant
    Muonionalusta - Iron fine octahedrite - (IVA)
    Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)

    This charming necklace has been hewn from a very large piece of the iconic Muonionalusta Meteorite. To create this barrel pendant, the original piece of Meteorite would have been much larger to result in this sized pendant. The Meteorite has been cut, etched and treated to reveal the unique Widmanstätten "crisscross" pattern showcased here. The barrel has been accented with an offset ring of Moldavite crystals and silver studs, which adds a sense of glamour to the already intriguing piece. The pendant is accompanied by a silver cable chain with a lobster clasp. This necklace is versatile and suitable for any occasion.
    Overall Measurements: 0.61 x 0.66 inches (1.56 x 1.67 cm)
