Meteorites carry a heavy spiritual vibration, and the metal in this meteorite helps to ground that energy. It is a great aid for enhancing perspective, bringing patience and outlook to situations. A stone of spiritual awakening and transformation, meteorites help one to develop intuition and increase other mystical, internal powers. By awakening the kundalini energy in the spine, meteorites help us to heal and cleanse energetically, as well as connecting us to our source. These meteorites are mostly made of nickel and iron, but small amounts of cobalt and other trace minerals can also be found. The etching, or line patterns are the result of cooling in outer space, etching slices with dilute nitric acid allow these patterns known as "Widmanstatten lines" to be visible.
This etched Gibeon meteorite is a beautiful example of this metallic crystal. It is such a unique material, as it literally doesn't even come from this Earth! I have wrapped this piece in a sturdy cage of 18 gauge wire. It is spiraled in .925 Argentium silver wire (a slower to tarnish, modern alternative to sterling silver). The pendant measures approximately 35mm by 22mm.
I am always conscious of how and why a project is coming together. I am aware of the energy exchange that goes into the creation process, and always strive to set my intentions in a place of love and positivity to create the purest vibration in my jewelry.
