ABOUT THE CAMPO DEL CIELO METEORITE:
The Campo Del Cielo iron meteorites were discovered in 1571 about 500 miles northwest of Buenos Aries, Argentina. Testing proved the 'rocks' to be meteorites, something that had been claimed by the local inhabitants. It is estimated that the meteorites fell 4,000 - 6,000 years ago at Campo del Cielo (meaning "field of sky" or "heaven) in Gran Chaco, Gualambia. Your meteorite fragments are made up iron, nickel, and many different scarce minerals, such as kamacite, taenite, plessite, triolite, graphite, and silicates.
Item is made to order and each piece is one of a kind. I hand pick each meteorite fragment myself, before making your special necklace. You will receive a pendant similar to the ones pictured above.
While this piece is water resistant, please refrain from getting necklace soaking wet. Do not wear in the shower, or while swimming.
