This amazing piece of Meteorite Jewellery is both wonderful and intriguing, the meteorite space pendant itself is made with a sample of genuine Mars meteorite dust, meaning it was once part of the surface of the Red Planet!
This chunk of Mars has been sent flying from the surface of Mars and around the Solar System for possibly millions of years where it has eventually ended up falling to Earth. The sample is dust collected while cutting a Martian meteorite. The meteorite was sourced from one of the most respected collectors of planetary meteorites in the world. The meteorites used have been analysed by a top laboratory and given an official meteorite number.
Designation: Northwest Africa 4925
History: The meteorite was found by Northwest Africa in 2007 and confirmed as chondrite (Martian, olivine-phyric shergottite).
Physical Characteristics: One fragment partly covered by fusion crust weighing 282.3g was found.
Petrography: (A. Greshake, MNB) The meteorite displays a porphyritic texture with large chemically zoned olivine megacrysts set into a fine-grained groundmass composed of pyroxene and maskelynite. Minor phases include chromite, sulfides, phosphates, and small Fe-rich olivines. The olivine megacrysts often contain melt inclusions and small chromites.
