Pallasite is the name given to the Olivine Crystals that are found in Meteorites. Gem quality Olivine is known as Peridot. So these are extra-terrestrial Peridot crystals. Peridot is the birthstone for August.

If you want to wear or gift something very rare, special, and unique, this is an item to consider.

Taking Care of Meteorite Jewelry:
As with any type of jewelry, pieces made with meteorite should not be worn in water or when using chemicals. Many household cleaning chemicals can weaken the metal made from meteorite or the metal that it is set in, causing corrosion, pitting it, or causing anything set in it to fall out. They can be cleaned with a common jewelry cleaning cloth, but should not be submerged in gold or silver cleaner.
Discoloration can be removed in most cases with a gentle application of toothpaste. Use iso-propyl alcohol for rinsing instead of water. The higher the percentages of alcohol content the better. Rubbing it with natural oils (such as coconut or lavender) helps seal out any moisture.
I recommend Renaissance Museum Wax (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance_Wax) to help seal out moisture. It can be found easily online and a tiny tin last a super-long time.
Meteorite jewelry should be stored like any other piece – separated so that it cannot be knocked around. Keep safe and dry. Using a silica packet, like those found in the packaging of many products is great to keep in the storage place of meteorite jewelry as it absorbs any moisture that may be present. However, keep the silica packet from actually touching the meteorite.
If taking meteorite jewelry to be professionally cleaned, make sure to notify the jeweler about what the piece is made of.
