Sleek and modern. Crafted using contemporary materials - cobalt chrome and genuine meteorite.
Measuring 7mm wide, the base of the ring is made of cobalt. What is cobalt you ask? Cobalt is a natural element with the symbol Co. It is naturally white colored (as bright as platinum), fairly hard with amazing luster. But it is very affordable.
The meteorite that is inlaid in the center is called Gibeon meteorite. Discovered in the 1830 in Namibia, Africa. It came from an asteroid or an exploding planet, that many experts claim may be as old as 4 billion years!
Meteorite is composed mainly of iron and nickel with small amount of cobalt in it. Because it is partially iron it will rust when exposed to long periods of moisture or water.
That is why this ring has a oil resin applied to it as a coating to keep it from rusting.
If you get this ring wet here is what to 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.
