About

Widmanstätten pattern meteorite inlay band, 4.5mm, 18 carat recycled white gold - One-of-a-kind Inspired by the intersection of Earth and cosmos, this ring of 18 carat recycled white gold features a handcrafted inlay panel featuring a 4.6 billion year old Widmanstätten pattern meteorite slice, sustainably sourced on the banks of river Muonio in Northern Finland and Sweden. SCANDINAVIAN WIDMANSTATTEN METEORITE SLICE: Name: Scandinavian Widmanstätten meteorite slice Origin: Asteroid Belt Solar System Age: 4.6 billion to 6.3 billion years old Mohs Hardness: Varies from 2.0 - 10.0 Date of fall: circa one million years ago Date of find: 1906 Location of find: Kiruna Norrbotten, Sweden Upon examining a cross-section of some iron meteorites, a unique natural relief referred to as a Widmanstätten pattern is noticeable. Named after Alois von Widmanstätten, a Viennese scientist who discovered it in 1808, the Widmanstätten pattern is a three-dimensional octahedral structure in the metal that is formed from interleaving bands of kamacite and narrower borders of taenite. The intersections are filled with a mixture of these two alloys. Discovered in melting glacial ice, this Scandinavian meteorite slice is approximately 4.6 billion years old and impacted the Earth circa one million years ago. We typically gather our Widmanstätten meteorite slices in Finland and Sweden. Satin finish Size: 10 1/4 *Can be sized upon request Handcrafted in New York City Custom commissions are available incorporating unique, rare and sustainable materials. Please inquire for additional information.
