COMING FROM SPACE
Will she land in your creation?
The power resides in an impact.
Scientifically following the intuition.
Spherica funds curious projects of creative individuals contributing to space research.
Did you know that glass forms by the impact of the meteorite?
The crafting process is truly unique. It requires patience and careful sample preparation before it is inserted inside the glass at very high temperatures.
Each Spherica is handcrafted individually. Using a technique developed by Ana and one of the best glassblowers in Europe, the carefully selected meteoritic fragment of the Moon is placed inside a high-quality glass sphere in our own glass studio. Each lunar fragment is unique and no two are the same.
SPHERICAL FORM, GLASS AND DIMENSION
The glass, as well as the spherical form of Spherica, are both connected to the outer space environment. In outer space, drops of liquid always form spheres. And glass forms by the impact of a meteorite when source materials are modified by heat and pressure.
Standard Spherica diameter is 1cm. Other dimensions are obtainable upon custom inquiry to perfectly fit your product design.
Materials with a long journey through space.
MOON NWA 11273
Collected on Earth by the world's most recognized scientists and world`s renowned collectors from the International Society for Meteoritics and Planetary Science. It is trackable in the World's database of Space Material (Meteoritical Bulletin). Each lunar meteorite comes with its official name and classification that guarantees the legitimacy of the meteorite.
Our in-house team consists of meteorite experts, holding university degrees in meteoritic sciences and classifying space material for the International Space Material Database.
MARS NWA 12564
The second space rock that picked our attention is martian meteorite or a meteoritic material from Mars.
We are honored to have among friends a great scientist who is an active contributor to the meteorite community, an author, and the chief curator of the largest display of space material in the world at the Natural History Museum in Vienna, Dr. Ludovic Ferriere. Between his scientific work and taking care of the international meteorite treasure, Dr. Ferriere also travels the globe in search of new impact craters to be confirmed.
To bring you out of this world.
