Copper and Black Titanium Mokume-gane is a mixed-metal composite with distinctive patterns. Translating as "wood-grain metal", the name was borrowed from one type of pattern created in the forging of swords and other edged weapons.

The traditional components were relatively soft metallic elements and alloys - gold, copper, silver, shakudo, shibuichi, and kuromido - which would form liquid phase diffusion bonds with one another without completely melting. After the original metal sheets were stacked and carefully heated, the solid billet of simple stripes could be forged and carved to increase the pattern's complexity. To achieve a successful lamination using the traditional process required a highly skilled smith with a great deal of experience.

Available Ring Sizes: 4 to 16, including 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 sizes.

This ring can not be engraved or re-sized.

Gibeon meteorites are made of an iron-nickel alloy, but contain also cobalt and phosphorus. The crystal structure of this meteorite is a classic example of fine octahedrite and the Widmanstatten pattern aesthetically appreciated both by collectors and jewel designers.
Gibeon is a meteorite fallen in prehistoric times in Namibia. It was named after the nearest town: Gibeon (Namibia).

The Meteorite Inlay shows a fantastic Widmanstatten pattern.
It has been etched with an acid to reveal the characteristic patterns, or Widmanstatten figures, of iron meteorites. No two etched meteorites will have the exact same pattern.

Meteorites are almost never "perfect". Please expect that there might be small imperfections/marks/inclusions visible in the meteorite. Their imperfection makes them unique and beautiful. Meteorites are formed as they travel through space and millions of years later they may land on earth.
