No two pendants are exactly alike. The center stone for this pendant was ejected from the Moon, landed in Earth and was purchased in Mali by Dustin Dickens from a meteorite hunter. 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 14Kt solid Gold.
