Shooting Star

Artist Statement: Wear your own shooting star! The stone within this necklace is an actual NWA meteorite found in the Sahara Desert. Meteorites are extraterrestrial in origin, and are classified according to their composition. Most meteorites are stony and made of silicate minerals, but some are partially or fully metallic and contain iron/nickel alloys. I do not know the composition of this meteorite, but it appears to be of the stony variety, and cannot move a compass needle. A small informational card is included.
