Hi Jay and List,
Meteorite jewelry is no absolutely new idea. You can buy meteorite =
watches with meteorite dials, meteorite medallions, rings with meteorite
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 =
be seen on p. 6 of his newest Catalog). Bob writes:
"This was a unique production to melt iron meteorite and cast it into =
of a kind coins. Canyon Diablo iron were melted down at over 3,400 =
and poured into molds to produce this space medal."
Bob's 1989 Catalog shows several examples of space jewelry: earring =
pendants, rings, etc.
Gibeon irons are commonly used as they are (or : were !) relatively
On Bob's website, you also find a gorgeous, faceted Esquel pallasite =
gem from his collection.
Moldavites are also used for meteorite jewelry.
