Meteorite Sikhote Alin Pendant Wire Wrapped .925 Sterling Silver
Meteorite, Sikhote-Alin Pendant Wire Wrapped .925 Sterling Silver
This iron-nickel octahedrite meteorite is a remnant of the Sikhote-Alin Meteor that fell in the Sikhote-Alin Mountains of southeastern Russia on February 12, 1947. Weight estimates of post fall material range from 23,000 to 31,000 kg with pre-entry mass of the meteoroid from 90,000 to 100,000 kg. The fall of this meteor produced 106 impact craters up to 28 meters (about 30 yards) in diameter over an area of 100 meters by 660 meters in a thick forest environment. Fragments (meteorites) weighing up to 300 kg have been recovered. An attractive, medieval appearing natural meteorite displays a combination of metallic silver gray with some remnant black fusion crust. While presented reasonably well with most colors of clothing, it is best worn with earth tone colors, also a good conversation piece; suits a naturalistic or artistic view best.
