This unique necklace features a piece of a meteorite from the village of Seymchan in Russia. This cut piece of meteorite is classified as an octahedrite, which reveals unique etchings on its surface, known as widmanstatten pattern, a characteristic this iron meteorite is known for. I chose to wrap this piece in gold wire for an elegant contrast to the meteorite's "gun metal" color. The wire is 14 karat, gold filled with tiny, cut facets to create a shimmery texture. It swirls about a Herkimer diamond at the top of the meteorite. The pendant measures 23mm wide and 35mm in length, which includes the gold bail. The pendant slides around a double chain of gold filled and oxidized, sterling silver in two different textures. The chain length is 18" adjustable up to 20". Hematite beads accent the chain near its clasp as well as the end of the extension chain.
