Meteorite Heart Necklace Picture

A Shooting Star Valentine Gift

Diamonds may be forever, but a meteorite, well, a meteorite that once flew thousands of light-years from the edges of the solar system is forever ever. The Meteorite Heart Pendant ($85) from Etsy shop ThePolkadotMagpie is made from real meteorite chunks discovered in 1967.

Composed of iron and nickel alloys, iron meteorites are believed to be made up of the core of planets that broke apart billions of years ago and traveled the universe until they one day hurtled to Earth.

The density of meteorite makes it a tough material to work with: a heavy-duty, large band saw and grinder are used to shape the hearts. Practicalities aside, the pendant is a romantic way of showing your love that you'd wander the depths of space for them, just like this shooting star.
