PLANETESIMAL (only 4)
Holding meteorite in your hand humbles the soul. You instantly embrace the vastness of our universe. Iron meteorites are thought to be samples of metallic cores, and molten pools that formed in diverse planetary bodies.
What began as molten remnants of planetary cores is now a wallet. That thought is well worth a pause.
Radiometric dating places the age of crystallization of the iron-nickel metal at 4 to 4.5 billion years. During its voyage through the vacuums of dark space, scientists calculate it took the main metal fragment 1,000 years to cool down even 1 degree Celsius. After these 4 billion years of travel, a meteorite hurtles to Earth, becoming a molten fireball as it penetrates the atmosphere before striking our planet’s surface tens of thousands of years ago.
At Bejeti, we have unlocked the ancient secrets of a lifeless fragment of iron-nickel alloy, formed it and gave it breath. The result is literally an out-of-this-world creation: the world’s first meteorite wallets.
“Voids” in the material itself can be discerned, while oxidation of high-iron content areas yield a glimpse of the meteor’s age. Billions of years’ travel through time and space are now perfected into an ultimate achievement of science, engineering, and artful design.
Humanity didn’t need ceilings painted by Michelangelo. Or Michelin-starred restaurants. Skyscrapers risen from islands, designer cars, and wallets made from planetary cores — we need none of these for survival. But where is the fun in simply surviving?
Meteorite - The careful eye will note minute material voids in this product line. These are natural occurrences from the cosmos, where various metals were forged from inter-planetary collisions 4+ billion years ago in exquisite artistry. These features highlight the bespoke nature of the Bejeti wallet, one which is not homogenously produced in mass fashion.
