Each meteorite ring is handcrafted out of a solid piece of meteorite in an extremely time-consuming process to create a truly unique ring that you would never find in a typical jewelry store.
Here is a video that shows the processes I take in making each ring:
Due to the natural properties of meteorite, each ring will be unique with its own individual patterns. Also, it is possible for the rings to have 1 or 2 naturally occurring small voids or pockets in them; these do not affect the strength or natural beauty of each ring.
Here's an excerpt from the above article that states everything needed to know the origin: "Since nickel-iron crystals grow to lengths of some centimeters only when the solid metal cools down at an exceptionally slow rate (over several million years), the presence of these patterns is the proof of the extraterrestrial origin of the material and can be used to easily determine if a piece of iron comes from a meteorite."
Disclaimer: Because all of our meteorite rings are machined from a solid piece of real meteorite they may ship with small cracks or nicks in them. This is because there are sometimes crystals underneath the surface of the meteorite that dissolve during the etching process. This leads to small aberrations in the meteorite, but these are part of what makes the etching organic.
Rust: We recommend not removing the liner because the liner helps prevent the rust.
