Making a Meteorite Ring

Buy ring here -
This meteorite wedding band I made for my own wedding.
It's made from high grade pieces of Gibeon Meteorite. The Gibeon is a fine octahedrite iron meteorite which flamed into our atmosphere as a visible star-like streak an estimated 30,000 years ago, landing in what is present day Namibia. Prior to this, the Gibeon meteorite traveled through space for over four billion years before it was finally trapped by the Earth's gravitational field and pulled to earth as a fire ball. It is composed primarily of various alloys of iron and nickel, as well as a number of extremely rare trace elements. It was derived from the core of an extinct planet that was blown apart billions of years ago during the formation of our solar system by a catastrophic impact event. The beautiful crystalline patterns within Gibeon meteorites are known as "Widmanstatten patterns", and are unique to meteorites.

    • @Inspire To Make really!!, do you know what meteorite this was from or source? My brother is big into all things space. I'd like to make a pendent for him for his 50th B-day

  • This is a bad choice for a ring. ""Inspire To Make" has his heart in the right place and does a great machining job, but putting an iron meteorite containing about 90% iron, 9% nickel, and 1% heavy metals many of which are rare and toxic over continued exposure (and many not normally encountered on Earth's surface). Collecting meteorites and making jewelry is a great passion, but the handling is restricted to brief moments, not living with it in constant contact with frequently sweaty, corrosive hands. Maybe a pendant, but not this sandwiched on a finger not giving the finger a chance to breathe chronically. A professional ring would add a layer of inert jewelry-friendly metal and use the meteorite as inlay or mounted.
