Campo del Cielo translates to "Field of Heaven" Though it fell to Earth more than 4000 years ago, this meteorite was first discovered in 1576 by a Spanish military expedition, searching for a source of iron. They have been purchased from Argentina from a member of the International Meteorite Collectors Association (IMCA). The IMCA adheres to the highest standards of meteorite identification and proper labeling practices.
Scientists believe that - like other iron meteorites - the Campo del Cielo mass originated within the Asteroid Belt located between Mars and Jupiter, and probably formed around the same time as the earth: some 4.5 billion years ago.
Only about 5% of meteorites found on Earth are iron, and the Campo del Cielo material is highly collectable. Each is about 5 grams.
Each pair of cufflinks is unique and one of a kind, and made by hand by Cyberoptix founder, Bethany Shorb. Working between Detroit, MI and Los Angeles, CA, she finds all our stone, crystal, shell, fossil and horn specimens. They are intuitively sourced in person, in LA from only the most reputable suppliers.
