The necklace was made from the Campo Del Cielo meteorite. The Campo del Cielo meteorite is known for more than 400 years. It developed from a smashed asteroid that had been just starting to form its molten iron core. These meteorites are highly precious because of their high Nickel and Iron Content. It fell from outer space about 4,200–4,700 years ago. Age of the meteoric iron is about 4.6 billion years old, as old as your own solar system! Campo del Cielo translates to "Field of Heavens" and means a group of iron meteorites found 620 miles northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is among the list of the oldest reported meteorite finds, as well as being the heaviest ever retrieved on the planet (even though in numerous fragments). It was initially discovered in 1576 though aboriginal residents who known of it for a long time. It's estimated that the pure iron asteroid weighed 800 tons before impact. Pieces of this meteorite were found as far away as Paraguay.
