This NWA869 meteorite 14k gold rope coin mount jewelry is shown with a chain. The meteorite was custom cut and set to make this distinctive, elegant jewelry. It is the extra large size.
The NWA869 meteorite is not only a fascinating scientific discovery but also holds unique beauty that has captured the hearts of artists and jewelers. This stony meteorite was first found in 2000 near Tindouf, Algeria, and quickly became popular among collectors for its striking appearance. It is classified as an L4-6 type meteorite, containing a mix of chondrules and fragments from older meteorites.
The mixture of chondrules, color, and metallic flakes makes this meteorite jewelry distinctive. A "question mark" can be seen in a portion of this meteorite. It is rare to find such an interesting feature in a meteorite.
NWA869 is believed to have originated from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, a significant source of meteorites that land on Earth. Over the millennia, it survived multiple high-energy impacts, which can be inferred from the presence of various chondrules and fragments within its structure. After an extended stay in space, it finally found its way to Earth, landing near Tindouf, Algeria, in 2000. Since its discovery, it has been extensively studied by scientists and enthusiasts, and its unique aesthetic qualities have been celebrated in jewelry. Its journey from the vast expanses of space to our planet makes the NWA869 a remarkable piece of cosmic history.
