20" Campo Del Cielo Meteorite Necklace Sterling Silver Chain-SIG3040

Accessorize like the stars with this cosmic meteorite necklace! This men or women’s sterling silver pendant holds a small chunk of the Campo del Cielo meteorite, which was discovered in Northeast Argentina. The meteorite created a total of 26 craters in the region. 

The name Campo del Cielo – which is Spanish for “Field of Heaven” refers to a group of iron meteorites or to the area where they were found situated on the border between the provinces of Chaco and Santiago del Estero, 1,000 kilometers (620 mi) northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. These meteorites, the heaviest group ever discovered on earth were only reported in 1576. Long before being reported officially and documented, the aboriginal inhabitants knew the “Field of Heaven” and its many craters well. The natives used these iron-based stones for their weapons and worshiped these stones from the sky. Spanish explorers doubted that these stones had fallen from space and assumed they came from a volcanic eruption. However, today we know these stones are 100% from space and definitely something worth worshiping!
