"Perseus" Black Hammered Tungsten Carbide Ring- Dinosaur Bones and Meteorite- 8mm

Size
*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.[5] 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])[1] 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.[2] 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.[3] The Muonionalusta meteorite, probably the oldest known meteorite (4.5653 ± 0.0001 billion years),[4] 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".

Ring Sizing

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!

A little disappointed

The fossils in my ring are all the same red color, I was hoping for more variety like it is shown in the pictures. I still like it, but I got less than I hoped for.

Very happy

My fiancé picked this ring because of the dinosaur bones forms MT. He loved the idea of having part of our state with him at all times.

It is even more beautiful than we expected. He wears it all the time and gets compliments anytime someone sees it.

Amazing products, amazing customer service!

When I ordered the ring, I ordered a size too small, oops! I was stressed over the idea of having to return the ring and receive it back in a timely manner. Boy, was I wrong! I shipped the ring (UPS ground) and less than ONE DAY after the ring was received by the returns department, the replacement was already shipped out with tracking details provided immediately. The entire shipping and return process took less than a week - that is unheard of! Besides the fantastic customer service I experienced, the ring is absolutely unique and gorgeous. I support this small business and you should too! I'd give 100 stars if I could!
