Actual star dust from outer space! This quaint glass vial with cork lid contains genuine stone meteorite mixed with gold stars! Stone meteorites originated in the outer crust of a planet or asteroid that once orbited the sun between Mars and Jupiter. Catastrophic collisions within the Asteroid Belt shattered some asteroids, sending pieces in all directions. Some of them eventually encountered Earth’s gravitational pull, resulting in a fiery journey through our atmosphere at speeds up to 100,000 miles per hour. The meteorite was found in the desert regions of Africa. A very desirable and collectible item that would make an out-of-this-world gift!
*Silver vial also available, in separate listing.
