Random cool stuff – Man forges his wedding ring from meteorite

This is pretty cool.

Laporkstein, an artist who’s been drawing his whole life, didn’t have a lot of prior experience working with metal. After one year of mulling over the idea, a few weeks of research, and a couple of days practicing on ordinary metal, he took his meteorite chunk and made thin rectangular strips from it. He then attached the strips together layer by layer and fashioned them into a ring.

There’s an image gallery here. Pretty cool!

  1. Cool! I know very little about that “alloy” but I hope the iron in it isn’t prone to staining, as years against your skin could get ugly.
