Parent body: The Moon - this is material was ejected from our Moon when it was hit by another meteorite and became a meteorite itself when it hit the Earth. It is an authenticated piece of the Moon.

This beautiful moon pendant has been hand crafted and assembled in the US by AZ based artisan Josh Eisler. Each pendant has a unique center stone and it is a completely unique part of the Moon. No two pendants are exactly alike. The center stone for this pendant was ejected from the Moon, landed on Earth and was found by camel shepherds in January 2021. This meteorite was classified by the Institute of Meteoritics at the University of New Mexico. 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. The pendant is set in Sterling Silver.
