I was super excited in anticipation of this ring, so it was quite a letdown to find it rusty brown right out of the box (see first photo). Despite this initial disappointment, it was fairly easy to clean up the rust using WD-40 and a soft toothbrush, and I plan to purchase ring wax to help maintain it. After the clean up, I could really appreciate the etching detail, which gives it a look as though it were created by some ancient alien civilization. The etched meteorite surface is a bit rough, so I would *definitely* recommend ordering this ring with a liner. I chose a red resin liner with an orange glow color. The glow resin fluoresces a bright orange-yellow under a UV lamp, but the phosphorescence is rather dim afterward. If the glow brightness is important to you, consider a green glow resin liner instead. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase, and I would recommend this ring.
