Field of Heaven
The Spanish name "Campo del Cielo" ("Field of Heaven") refers to an old legend from the natives of this region of Argentina, that the iron they made their weapons from originally came from a mass that had fallen from the sky. The European conquerors dismissed this silly tale, and searched for the iron vein in the ground or a volcanic source of the metal. But while they were digging around in the dirt, they should have been looking upward, to the stars, for the natives really did know where the Campo del Cielo iron had come from...
You'll never forget to look up at the heavens above when you wear this Spiral Galaxy Meteorite Pendant. A solid sterling silver spiral reminiscent of our own Milky Way galaxy, that holds at its center a genuine Campo del Cielo meteorite, dropped from the sky. Presented in an elegant jewelry gift box, this necklace is the gift you can give that comes with a history. A *long* history.
For our customers with nickel allergies: This pendant is made from solid nickel-free sterling silver. However, Campo del Cielo meteorites are naturally about 7% nickel. The sterling silver pendant fully backs the meteorite, so it generally will not be touching your skin.
