Our meteorite rings are made with authentic Gibeon meteorite. Gibeon meteorite was formed by metals in a super heated state and cooled over 4 billion years. This slow cooling caused the molecules in the meteorite to settle into a crystalline structure similar to what is seen in many gemstones. This rare phenomenon does not occur naturally on Earth and is what gives the meteorite its distinct Widmanstätten pattern.
