About the meteorite:
This meteorite is Gibeonite - the most sought after for jewelry. It displays a beautiful Widmanstatten pattern and has a bit less iron in its composition, meaning less chance of rusting. Gibeon meteorite was originally was discovered in Namibia, Africa in the mid 1800s. Because it is becoming prized for jewelry uses, it is becoming much scarcer and more expensive. Prices have doubled in the past 5 years on the raw product.
The edges of the ring are cobalt. Cobalt is an element found in the earth that is hypo-allergenic and bright white color. It looks identical to platinum (much prettier than "white gold", which is really kinda yellowish). And does not scratch as easy as white gold or platinum.
Meteorite is made up mainly of iron. Iron, as you know, does rust. So you must take proper care of your ring. Before we ship it to you, the ring has an oil resin that is applied to it, this acts as a water barrier to keep it from rusting.
What to do when your ring gets wet:
If you do get it wet, and I'm sure you will, here is what you should do:
- Completely dry the ring.
- Dip the ring in rubbing alcohol.
- Completely dry it - use a blow dryer.
- Rub the meteorite with some gun oil to reseal it.
- Or just bring it to us and we will take care of it for you.
