SCIENCE + INFO
Rumuruti-type meteorites take their name from a 1934 witnessed; on January 28, a bright light and loud explosion were observed by locals at around 10:43pm. After testing it was determined these were chondrites and in fact a new type, R chondrite, making them incredibly rare.
Scientists believe these meteorites may have come from the parent asteroid’s regolith, which refers to the blanket of loose deposits that sit over solid rocks. As such, they have a dusty matrix that cements together fragments of broken rock and mineral inclusions. Though the exact age of this material has yet to be determined, researchers believe the collision event may have occurred somewhere between 15 and 25 million years ago.
Stony-iron meteorites are just that, of roughly equal proportions of nickel-iron and stony material and are the least abundant of all meteorites. In the case of pallasites that stony material is olivine, or what gemologists refer to as peridot.
Their high density and internal crystalline pattern names the Widmanstätten pattern are what identifies them from other terrestrial iron-ore mineral materials.
Although meteorites have survived millions of years hurtling through space before colliding with earth in a cataclysmic event, they're still in need of some TLC.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
