*Special Note- Supply is very limited on these, as this meteorite and dinosaur bone is old, and rare, so what we have is available, but while we will try, no future stock can be guaranteed on these, it depends what we can get, and when, and at what cost. We will not raise prices on current batch, but future rings will be priced based on material costs.
This is another in a line of rings that we are really excited about. These rings include Muonionalusta meteorite, T-REX/Triceratops bones, and Mammoth teeth. To have a ring that includes materials that are millions of years old is very exciting to us, and we hope that you like them as well!
About the Dinosaur Bone:
This dinosaur bone was harvested from the Hell Creek formation in the US. Hell Creek Formation, division of rocks in North America dating to the end of the Cretaceous Period some 65.5 million years ago. Named for exposures studied on Hell Creek, near Jordan, Montana, it occurs in eastern Montana and portions of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. The Gembone that we use is from the predominant dinosaurs that are found in the area, which are the infamous T-Rex, and the Triceratops. The pieces are small, so we can not identify individual pieces, but they are all unique and beautiful, and range in colors from Orange to reds to blues.
About The Meteorite:
Studies have shown it to be the oldest discovered meteorite impacting the Earth during the Quaternary Period, about one million years ago. It is quite clearly part of the iron core or mantle of a planetoid, which shattered into many pieces upon its fall on our planet. Since landing on Earth the meteorite has experienced four ice ages. It was unearthed from a glacial moraine in the northern tundra. It has a strongly weathered surface covered with cemented faceted pebbles.
The Muonionalusta meteorite (Finnish pronunciation: [ˈmuo̯nionˌɑlustɑ], Swedish pronunciation: [mʉˈǒːnɪɔnalːɵsta]) is a meteorite classified as fine octahedrite, type IVA (Of) which impacted in northern Scandinavia, west of the border between Sweden and Finland, about one million years BCE.
The first fragment of the Muonionalusta meteorite was found in 1906 near the village of Kitkiöjärvi. Around forty pieces are known today, some being quite large. Other fragments have been found in a 25-by-15-kilometre (15.5 mi × 9.3 mi) area in the Pajala district of Norrbotten County, approximately 140 kilometres (87 mi) north of the Arctic Circle.
The meteorite was first described in 1910 by Professor A. G. Högbom, who named it after the nearby place Muonionalusta on the Muonio River. It was studied in 1948 by Professor Nils Göran David Malmqvist. The Muonionalusta meteorite, probably the oldest known meteorite (4.5653 ± 0.0001 billion years), marks the first occurrence of stishovite in an iron meteorite.
The name Muonionalusta has Finnish roots: it comes from the name of the Muonio River (+ possessive particle -(o)n-) and alusta, meaning "base, foundation, stand, mat, tray", thus probably "base of the Muonio". "alusta" also means "from the beginning", "starting point" which may refer to possible first finding places "Muonion alusta", "from the beginning of Muonio-river".

Our rings are based on comfort fit sizing. We recommended having your ring finger measured at least twice to make sure that you get the appropriate size. In the case of the wrong size ring, we will do our best to make it right, but there will be a small shipping charge to make the exchange.
Also, please keep in mind that ring sizing is more art than science. Any given finger may be able to comfortably span a full size. Some (myself included) prefer a looser fit, where it will not fall off, but it will never put the squeeze on as finger sizes change during the day. One thing we promise, is that we will make sure that you get what works best for you!
I bought this ring as a wedding band for my fiance. This all started with me forgetting i needed actually select the size I wanted so it defaulted to a size 6. Thankfully I realized quickly what I had done abd emailed their customer service right away and got a response that they were changing the size to what I requested. On top of that beginning stumble on my part, I knew very little about how to measure or figure out his ring size. So when we got the ring it wouldn't even go past his knuckle... I followed their exchange instructions and got the ring back in the mail the next day. We got the second ring in the larger size and it still was a bit off but thankfully they had sent a ring size helper along with thos exchange so we were able to nail down the size by the second exchange. Everything was easy and a very good turnaround with notifications at each stage. The ring comes well wrapped and in a box so there was never any risk of damage and he absolutely loves the ring. He didn't want your typical ring and this was perfect for him! Thanks RBL!
This arrived in less than 24 hours for me, including another ring (that i love). This feels so comfortable and i was lucky to size it just perfectly. i'm gonna wear it every day because i love to touch and think about it =)
