    Muonionalusta Meteorite Earrings
    Iron, IVA
    Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
    Found: 1906

    This dazzling pair of handcrafted earrings have been painstakingly constructed out of the famed Muonionalusta Meteorite, which exhibits the identifiable Widmanstätten crisscross patterning. This extraordinary meteorite was discovered in Sweden back in 1906. This pair of earrings features a tear drop shape with Peridot colored round accent stones. Each slice of meteorite has been plated and surrounded by 925 Sterling silver and measures approximately 0.62 x 0.33 inches (1.6 x 0.85 cm). The meteorite slices have been placed so they are visible on both the front and back of the earrings. This set has been finished with fishhook backings for easy wear. These earrings are perfect for any occasion and are in excellent condition.
    Overall Measurements: 0.92 x 0.43 x 0.12 inches (2.34 x 1.09 x 0.31 cm)
