Since there's one hurtling towards the earth for a near miss this week, do you know the difference between an asteroid and a meteorite? It's all about location, location, location.

Asteroid: Large rocks that orbit the sun.
Meteoroid: Chunks of asteroids that break off and also orbit the sun.
Meteor: A meteoroid enters Earth's atmosphere and vaporizes. We call this a meteor (or shooting star).
Meteorite: A meteoroid enters Earth's atmosphere and doesn't completely vaporize. The chunks that hit the Earth are called meteorites.

Meteorites are incredibly unique. Each has their own "matrix", or lines criss-crossing them. Our meteorite jewelry is some of the most interesting pieces you'll ever see.

Take a look at our "out of this world" meteorite jewelry here.
