All New! Man in the Moon Bead containing real moon dust!
These limited-edition lampwork glass beads contain real moon dust and are available exclusively from Beads of Courage! Created by bead artist Steve Bay, each handmade bead contains authentic moon dust generously donated by Geoff Notkin, star of TV’s "Meteorite Men" and CEO of Aerolite Meteorites, Inc.
The front side of the bead features a crescent Man in the Moon design, surrounded by a moon dust swirl, with a twinkling cubic zirconia star. The back side of the bead depicts the full moon embedded with patches of real moon dust. The beads are even prettier in person than in the photo!
The moon dust used in these beads was collected in the laboratory from pieces of a lunar meteorite. We know the meteorite came from the moon because examination by scientists showed its geological structure to be a close match to lunar return samples brought back from the moon by the Apollo astronauts. Each bead comes with a Certificate of Authenticity!
