Martian Meteorite Pendant

600

From the website:

As of 2014, only 132 out of over 61,000 documented meteorites analyzed have been positively identified as being Martian in origin.

That's just 0.22%.

Pretty rare indeed.

But just think of what had to happen for that bit of Mars to end up here intact and not lost in the depths of the Mariana Trench or buried in the sands of the Sahara.

We've been working on this capsule for a long time, and we're pretty pleased that we've finally succeeded in creating it.

While we may not be able to travel through all of time and space (yet... or ever?), this necklace can remind you, or a dear friend or loved one, that there's much more to life than what is in front of our eyes.

When I'm wearing my necklace, people sometimes come up to me and ask, "Does that open?" which is usually followed by "What’s in it?" You know, just a little conversation can start a spark  — perhaps that's just enough for people to go out and become a little intrigued, maybe even look up at the stars for the first time in a very a long time....

"Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future." — H.G. Wells

Well, my Ducats will be going out for one of those. That's just a fascinating thing to own.
