Many times when meteorites fall to Earth, they aren't usually seen.  But in 1947, a meteorite exploded over the Sikhote-Alin mountain range in Russia and left many smaller pieces scattered around the range. It was as bright as the Sun and happened at 10: 30 am and was seen by many. This is pendant features one of those pieces.

Classified as an iron meteorite, it's composed of mostly iron and nickel.  Wires of 14K yellow gold have been welded to the fragment to mimic the fireball as it crashes to Earth.

Remember that every piece of meteorite is different; the piece you receive will probably vary in shape, but they are all around three inches in length.
