Campo del cielo was a very large meteorite fall, it is theorized to be a large piece that broke up when entering the atmosphere, some 4000 to 6000 years ago. Campo del cielo means field of the sky or heaven, which is a very appropriate name. This meteorite was first discovered in 1576, the meteorite fragments have been found over a large area, both inside and outside of craters. Most Campo pieces come from Argentina, although some very recent finds suggest fragments may be found as far away as Peru. This is one of the few iron meteorites. It has been studied extensively by many Universities and may also be found in several museum collections.
This meteorite has a unique crystallization known as the Widmanstatten crystal structure. These lines are shown as a unique etched pattern on the meteorite. This pattern is the result of the meteorite cooling in outer space over billions of years. Although not as finely detailed as other meteorites, these pieces still display this pattern when cut and etched with acid.
As this meteorite is composed mostly of iron, care must be taken to prevent the piece from rusting. Oil the piece regularly with mineral oil. Do not leave the ring laying around on wet sinks or wear in the shower.
Translated to "field of heaven", this Campo del Cielo meteorite ring is perfect for the dreamers, space enthusiasts and armchair philosophers.
Herkimer Quartz "Diamonds" are for the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually transparent with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid Light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals.
They are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Beings doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. They are reported to be harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals.

This ring requires special care - Meteorites have a high iron content, and exposure to water and other chemicals, such as lotions or perfumes, will damage them over time (rust). If you polish the jewellery, avoid polishing the meteorites and stones. A silver-cleaning dip should never be used with this piece.
