Description: *Beautiful set of lunar meteorite oval cufflinks in Sterling Silver.

These beautiful moon cufflinks have been hand crafted and assembled in the US by AZ based artisan Joshua Eisler. The center stone for these cufflinks was ejected from the Moon and found in Mali by camel shepherds in January 2021 .
The center stone has been free-hand shaped to find the best qualities in each area of the stone, and making every piece totally unique. It has been classified and given the name NWA 14041 by the Meteoritical Society with the classification: Lunar Feldspathic Breccia. The official name and classification have been published in the Meteoritical Bulletin.
Paren body: The Moon - this is material ejected from our Moon when it was hit by another meteorite and became a meteorite itself when it hit the Earth.
What you get: Two lunar meteorite cufflinks set in Sterling Silver as shown, w/ signed Certificate of Authenticity, and handcrafted custom box.
Top Meteorite offers a 100% no questions asked 30 day return policy.

*Buyer Notice: Each center stone is unique which means no two set of cufflinks will be the exactly the same. We use the same .925 sterling silver settings, the same lunar meteorite material hand cut from the same main mass. This means the center stones in your cufflinks will be unique and not be exactly the same as those in the pictures above. This allows us to provide our clients with multiple sets of lunar cufflinks without the added costs of photographing each set.
