Space Jewelry

Space Jewelry

I found this really interesting article on how the Ancient Egypt might have obtained iron before everyone else and the speculated origin of the iron is from space.  Apparently, meteors fell nearby Egypt in antiquity and that is how they obtained iron, it was from the stone meteorite which then would be molded into jewelry. The jewelry was essentially for the pharaoh because of its sacred value, they believed that meteors were body parts of a god. 

 

There are several skeptics but there are also specialist like Johnson who want to look further into the iron (meteorite) jewelry of Ancient Egyptians.
