Black Meteorite with Twin Color Stripes
This ring has a centered wide inlay of meteorite centered between two U shaped grooves with anodized colors in them. Anodizing is a process where a clear oxide is grown to a specific thickness, and it gets color by interference of lightwaves like a soap bubble does. The meteorite used is the Gibeon Meteorite, and is estimated to be over 4 billion years old! It is blackened chemically. The meteorite traveled millions of miles through space before landing in South Africa sometime in prehistory. It has a unique crystalline grain structure called Widmanstatten lines that were caused by the meteorite slowly cooling over millions of years. The ring shown is 9mm wide and the titanium is the polished finish.
