Hera: Queen of the Gods, The Elegant Series
These creations are highlighted by authentic rocks from the Moon, Mars, and iron meteorites. Irons showcase a beautiful, geometric, lattice-like structure made up of two nickel-iron alloys. Many are surprised to learn that iron is itself a crystal, as we rarely see it in crystalline form. However, in space, the molten cores of asteroids cool very slowly, over millions of years; this allows the crystalline structure of iron to take shape. This is a feature unique to iron meteorites. Not only that, but each meteorite has its own distinct pattern. In that sense, they are a bit like cosmic snowflakes—no two are the same.
The majesty and mystery of our Moon has fascinated human beings since the dawn of civilization. Early humans used the Moon as a timepiece; her changing faces kept track of the seasons. She regularly appeared in cave paintings as ancient peoples learned art and desired to describe the natural world around them. Similarly, Mars has appeared in ancient tales of war and battle, and as the father of Romulus and Remus, the mythical founders of Rome. The month of March (Martius) as named after Mars, and the Red Planet is the site of much scientific study in our search for our place among the stars.
