UNIQUE Unusual Space Gift Campo del Cielo. The Campo del Cielo Meteorite Ballpoint Pen is a writing instrument unlike any other. The barrel is handcrafted using resin and actual material from a meteorite that had been floating in Space for billions of years before it crashed to earth in a fireball 4,000-6,000 years ago. The meteorite, called Campo del Cielo, was first discovered in 1576 in the Gran Chaco Gualamba region of Northern Argentina. It was found on an open, brush covered, waterless plain. The Indians named the area, Campo del Cielo, or Field of Heaven. They believed the rocks came from the sky, or heaven. The pen barrel is cast with tiny pieces of actual Campo del Cielo meteorite particles that are embedded within the crystal clear resin. The photos show the beautiful textured pattern of the material. This unique pen is handcrafted in my shop. Many hours are spent on each one, from casting the resin to final assembly to assure that the quality is consistent throughout. The titanium and rhodium-plated finish on the metal components add to the beauty and durability of this unique pen. The pen operates with a twist mechanism and is about 5 inches long and is very comfortable to write with. Ink refills, when needed, are standard Parker-type refills available at office supply stores. Each pen is enclosed in a handsome black velvet presentation case and includes the COA card shown, describing its unique history and care. The image of the Meteor Crater near Flagstaff, Arizona shows the power of the force of a meteorite when it strikes the earth. A Perfect gift idea for any Space Enthusiast! As is my Usual Policy.
