Silver Coil Tektite Earrings
Jewelry - Tektite, Silver-filled Wire And Swarovski Crystal
These wicked-cool earrings have a contemporary look. Handcrafted with tektite (meteorite impactite) nuggets, swathed in hand-wrapped silver-filled coils, each earring is suspended from a handmade silver-filled French earwire finding with a genuine Swarovski crystal accent. These unique earrings make a great gift!
Tektites are natural glass rocks up to a few centimeters in size, which most scientists argue were formed by the impact of large meteorites on Earth's surface. According to the terrestrial-impact theory, a meteorite impact melts material from the Earth's surface and catapults it up to several hundred kilometers away from the impact site, through space (which accounts for their drastically low water content, which averages just 0.005%). The molten material cools and solidifies to glass.
