Hi Jay and List,

Meteorite jewelry is no absolutely new idea. You can buy meteorite pendants,
watches with meteorite dials, meteorite medallions, rings with meteorite inlay,
etc., etc.

Bob Haag's 1997 Meteorite Catalog has a watch with an etched Toluca face
on page 8. On the same page, there is on of his meteorite medallions (also to
be seen on p. 6 of his newest Catalog). Bob writes:

"This was a unique production to melt iron meteorite and cast it into these one
of a kind coins. Canyon Diablo iron were melted down at over 3,400 degrees
and poured into molds to produce this space medal."

Bob's 1989 Catalog shows several examples of space jewelry: earring sets,
pendants, rings, etc.

Gibeon irons are commonly used as they are (or : were !) relatively inexpensive
and stable.

On Bob's website, you also find a gorgeous, faceted Esquel pallasite peridot
gem from his collection.

Moldavites are also used for meteorite jewelry.

Best wishes,
