The images above illustrate an example of a horribly-made, fake meteorite ring. We ordered it online from a not-to-be-named retailer who was claiming that this was real meteorite. The ring was just $39.99. We cut it apart to see the results of the inlay, which appeared to be foil paper with a clear, plastic protective layer over the top.

Another way to quickly identify if you have a real piece of meteorite is by checking with a magnet. Since about 99% of meteorite is magnetic, real meteorite will be attracted to the magnet. If your jewelry is not magnetic, it is not likely to be real meteorite.

So if someone mixed 4 ingots of molton iron with 1 ingot molten of nickel together, then from the mix created a small metalletter opener and etched it with nitric acid. How then could we tell that it is a fake? Do they etch differently?

Rolex, ever searching for the best and most exclusive materials, utilized pieces of the rare space rock as part of the raw materials for the construction of their watches. Rolex was the first manufacturer to utilize slices of meteorite to develop completely unique dials, pairing them with other rare metals like 18k gold or 950 platinum to develop truly unique and collectable versions of their most noteworthy watches.

Each dial is made from a solid slice of the Gibeon meteorite, which is then attached to the surface of the dial and treated with an acid-wash finish to bring out its natural crystalline pattern. Since the unique pattern seen on meteorite dials is completely naturally occurring, the pattern will slightly vary from one dial to the next, and no two Rolex meteorite dials will ever appear exactly the same.

Meteorite dials have been a fixture of the Rolex portfolio for several years, first appearing within the Daytona and Day-Date collections and then gracing the Datejust, Pearlmaster, and GMT Master II. Today, the Daytona, Day-Date, and GMT Master II are the only models Rolex continues to produce with the meteorite dial. However, the discontinued models can still be found on the secondary market.

For Baselworld 2019, Rolex unveiled a new, ultra-premium version of their reference 126719 BLRO "Pepsi" GMT-Master II, which is crafted entirely from 18k white gold, and fitted with a striking meteorite dial. This release marked the first time that meteorite has been used on Rolex's GMT-Master line of watches, and introduced a new top-of-the-line version of their iconic, multi-time zone pilot/traveler's watch.

The Gibeon meteorite is now protected by Namibian law, meaning that no one can further harvest it. Despite reaching an end in the supply of this remarkable resource, Rolex is still able to offer meteorite dials, as they previously procured some of most aesthetically pleasing deposits of the Gibeon meteorite (before it became protected), and have slowly been using their initial supply for the construction of their unique meteorite dials ever since.

As one of the rarest dial materials in the Rolex lineup, meteorite watches understandably retail for more than their non-extraterrestrial dial counterparts. Additionally, Rolex currently exclusively produces meteorite dial watches in precious metal. When buying a meteorite dial Rolex, you can expect to invest a significant sum. Current production models start at $33,550 for the yellow gold Daytona on Oysterflex to well over $40k for the same watch on a metal bracelet. The white gold GMT Master II retails for $41,600, and the entry point for the Day-Date 40 is $49,550, starting with the white gold model.

A Rolex meteorite dial is certainly rare - not only in terms of Rolex watches, but also as a raw material throughout the world. Considering the meteorite dial is literally "out of this world," it is no surprise that there is a fixed and highly-limited supply of it, and that Rolex utilized slices of the Gibeon meteorite to create one of the most unusual and aesthetically pleasing dials ever manufactured. What do you think of this unique dial? Let us know in the comments below.

Swords forged from meteorites are the rarest of the rare. You are more likely to be struck by lighting than actually hold one in your hand. Currently there are only a few hundred that exist in the world, and they are rarely seen for sale.

Ronin uses the crucible method of metal extraction from the meteorites. The meteorites are smashed up, placed in stainless steel crucibles, and heated until the meteorites turn molten. The metal is then forged into ingots which are stacked and drawn out into a sword. No additional steel is added. The swords for sale by Ronin are made only from meteorites, which requires several more pounds. The end result is a unique sword forged the same way they have been for thousands of years.

Each meteorite sword offered by Ronin is forged by a government ranked master, polished by a ranked master, and assembled by a ranked master. Pictures and video are taken of the process and provided exclusively to the buyer so you know what you are getting is genuine. These are works of art that take months to produce.

It sounds like the plot of a science fiction movie: humans are destroying the Earth, gouging huge scars in its crust, and polluting the air and the ground as they mine and refine a key element essential for technological advance. One day, scientists examining an alien meteorite discover a unique metal that negates the need for all that excavation and pollution. Best of all, the metal can be replicated, in a laboratory, using base materials. The world is saved!

We spoke to Laura Henderson Lewis, one of the professors on the Northeastern team, and she told us the material found in the meteorites is a combination of two base metals, nickel and iron, which were cooled over millions of years as meteoroids and asteroids tumbled through space. That process created a unique compound with a particular set of characteristics that make it ideal for use in the high-end permanent magnets that are an essential component of a vast range of advanced machines, from electric vehicles to space shuttle turbines.

But it will be a long time before tetrataenite is in a position to disrupt any existing markets, Laura Lewis says. She says there is still a lot of testing to be done to find out whether lab tetrataenite is as hardy and as useful as the outer space material. And even if it turns out to be as good, it will be five to eight years "pedal to the metal" before anyone could make permanent magnets out of it.

Nearly all of the photos in the links below were sent to me by persons inquiring whether the object in the photo was a meteorite. The links give more details and contain photos related to the point I am stating.

The iron found in iron meteorites was one of the earliest sources of usable iron available to humans, due to the malleability and ductility of the meteoric iron,[4] before the development of smelting that signaled the beginning of the Iron Age.

Although they are fairly rare compared to the stony meteorites, comprising only about 5.7% of witnessed falls, iron meteorites have historically been heavily over-represented in meteorite collections.[5] This is due to several factors:

Iron meteorites have been linked to M-type asteroids because both have similar spectral characteristics in the visible and near-infrared. Iron meteorites are thought to be the fragments of the cores of larger ancient asteroids that have been shattered by impacts.[7] The heat released from the radioactive decay of the short-lived nuclides 26Al and 60Fe is considered as a plausible cause for the melting and differentiation of their parent bodies in the early Solar System.[8][9] Melting produced from the heat of impacts is another cause of melting and differentiation.[10] The IIE iron meteorites may be a notable exception, in that they probably originate from the crust of S-type asteroid 6 Hebe.

The overwhelming bulk of these meteorites consists of the FeNi-alloys kamacite and taenite. Minor minerals, when occurring, often form rounded nodules of troilite or graphite, surrounded by schreibersite and cohenite. Schreibersite and troilite also occur as plate shaped inclusions, which show up on cut surfaces as cm-long and mm-thick lamellae. The troilite plates are called Reichenbach lamellae.[11]

Iron meteorites were historically used for their meteoric iron, which was forged into cultural objects, tools or weapons. With the advent of smelting and the beginning of the Iron Age the importance of iron meteorites as a resource decreased, at least in those cultures that developed those techniques. In Ancient Egypt and other civilizations before the Iron Age, iron was as valuable as gold, since both came from meteorites, for example Tutankhamun's meteoric iron dagger.[13] The Inuit used the Cape York meteorite for a much longer time. Iron meteorites themselves were sometimes used unaltered as collectibles or even religious symbols (e.g. Clackamas worshiping the Willamette meteorite).[14] Today iron meteorites are prized collectibles for academic institutions and individuals. Some are also tourist attractions as in the case of the Hoba meteorite.

A newer chemical classification scheme based on the proportions of the trace elements Ga, Ge and Ir separates the iron meteorites into classes corresponding to distinct asteroid parent bodies.[18] This classification is based on diagrams that plot nickel content against different trace elements (e.g. Ga, Ge and Ir). The different iron meteorite groups appear as data point clusters.[2][19] 041b061a72
