Size
*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!!

Just what my fiance wanted. He wanted a ring that was durable and unique, something that looked cool and made him feel like a 'viking' lol. The ring is a darker grey in person, but it looks great. It almost 'sparkles' when it moves as the light hits the facets of the hammered ring. Very cool and subtle.
We thought the 8mm would be too big for his small-ish finger but it looks great.
We originally bought a different style in the wrong size. We decided that this one was the style we wanted and returned the other one after ordering this one. My refund came quickly with no issue. Just follow the instructions and write down why you are returning the ring on a piece of paper and put it in the box. The return process was fine, I purchased a first class label at the post office, and that helped me get my refund quicker. We can't always have the easy free returns that amazon provides, but I think it's worth it to support a small business.
Also, it comes in a really cool wooden ring box. I was pleasantly suprised.

The Zeus wows!

Such a beautiful ring, my husband loves it. It shimmers in the light and the band of meteorite is just thick enough to give it that exta pop and uniqueness.
I'm a goof and got the wrong size twice!?! Both returns were fast and easily to taken care of, with refunds that were equally as prompt. I had to purchase the return labels myself, package and send back which was a pain but it wasn't bad.
We are so very pleased with this beautiful, well crafted ring! Highly recommended 👌

Really good quality

The ring feels very well made and quite heavy, which I like. The detail of the meteorite is quite intricate and shimmers in the light. It looks amazing while not being too obtrusive. My questions were answered really quickly by customer service.
