"Zeus" Hammered Tungsten Carbide Ring- Black w/ Meteorite- 8mm

*Special Note- Supply is very limited on these, as this meteorite 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 may be the most excited that we have ever been for a ring release! We were able to get a chunk of what is believed to be the oldest meteorite ever to hit planet earth, over 1 Million years ago! Want to hear something crazy? 4 Ice ages have been recorded on earth since this meteor struck earth, 4 Ice Ages! The Muonionalusta meteorite acquisition was the result of 4 years of trying to find pieces, and we are so happy with how they turned out, and we have included some close ups to see the beauty.

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!

Perfect for my nerd!

My husband is a chemist, loves science, gemology. He loves that it has a meteorite, perfect fit. Hasn’t worn to work outside yet but so far it’s a fave!

Quality ring and customer service!

I bought this gorgeous ring for my husband who loves it, but it was a half size too big. I emailed to ask about ring resize costs but was informed that tungsten can’t be resized. Instead they offered me a very generous discount code to repurchase the ring in the right size.

My fiancé and I sat down and picked this ring together and it is everything he could ever want and more! It is so sleek looking and so unique, yet has the toughness that he needs for his everyday work. We love it!!!

Love this ring

My husband and I love the ring! It’s so nice, and great quality. I ordered the first ring too big. The return process was very easy, and he got his new ring very quickly!

Incredible customer service and product

I never write reviews, but this company and the product exceeded my expectations. I purchased a ring from Rings by Lux as an anniversary surprise for my husband. I ordered late so I paid for express shipping. When I hit order, I noticed that the express shipping was not on the order. I contacted the company immediately by email and they were so fast to respond. They cancelled my order and I was able to order again, to include the shipping. The ring arrived 2 days later. It came in a nice wooden ring box. The ring is high quality and so nice to look at.
I ordered the wrong size and when I again contacted the company, they offered to send a ring sizer so we could make sure we got the size right.
My husband loves his new ring and I love seeing it on his hand.
This company goes above and beyond to make sure their customers are happy. I would highly recommend Rings by Lux.
