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

Classified as an iron meteorite, it's composed of mostly iron and nickel.  It sits in a handcrafted pendant of 14K yellow gold. 

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