Ever promised someone the Moon? Now you can fulfill that promise!
These lunar meteorite earrings are made with a sample of genuine Moon meteorite dust, meaning it was once part of the surface of the Moon! The Moon, The Light That Rules the Night, its something that everyone recognizes as so normal they barely give it a second thought yet at the same time it is something truly magical and mysterious.
Real Moon dust, sounds unbelievable right? I am sure you are wondering how this is possible.
So, how did we get this Moon dust you may ask? This dust came from lunar meteorite NWA 5000, which was found in July 2007 in southern Morocco.
Lunar meteorites are pieces of the Moon that were blasted into space by an impact event on the lunar surface, occasionally these rocks fall to Earth as meteorites. Lunar meteorites are extremely rare as only just over 300 have ever been found--and none have been found in North America, South America or Europe.
Unfortunately fakes are common, however, we can prove the authenticity of our meteorites. For more information on that: Click Here
I am a member of the International Meteorite Collectors Association (IMCA #9257 www.imca.cc) and The Meteoritical Society so buy with confidence.
These earrings are handmade using solid sterling silver and pure crystal glass. We felt that silver best represents the silvery glow of the moon. The crystal glass is shaped to allow for some magnification for a close up view of the magical contents.
