"Meteorites were formed more than 4.5 billion years ago and were first made known and discovered by people only in Year 1836 (for Gibeon meteorite) and Year 1906 (for Muonionlusta Meteorite). They formed deep in the iron core of an asteroid that resided between Mars and Jupiter. The latticework (aka Widmanstätten pattern), is a product of the solid-state intergrowth of two different iron-nickel minerals: kamacite (the low-nickel variety) and taenite (the high-nickel variety)."
The energy of Meteorite is generally more intense as compared to other crystals (such as Quartz) and minerals. With its extraterrestrial nature, age and how it came to form and land on Earth, this mineral has a purpose and is here to guide us on upgrading our system through transformation and expansion. It is one of those stones that are loved by many spiritual workers and enthusiast-alike as it allows one to "feel powerful", helps with astral travelling and other meditative related work. To those who have not been acquainted with Meteorite, you would want to know that you may feel its presence as it makes pushing blocks out of your system its priority so that you may proceed to use it to your/its highest potential. Some people may find it hard to wear for consecutive period of time due to its intensity and may feel light/heavy or ungrounded/too grounded depending on your situation or nature. (Not everyone is sensitive to energy so you may not feel it physically) If it happens, listen to yourself and if need to, put it away for some time until you feel good to work with it again. When you are ready, you will find that working with Meteorite regularly helps to boost mental focus and concentration, heightens intuition and inspiring ideas and overall, feeling empowered.
