An Iron meteorite Vajra Tibet with gilt trace. As Iron meteorite, the local Tibetan people call it "Tian steel" , which means steel comes from the sky. They think the aerolite is very holy and they usually use it to make ritual objects, and give great respect to it. Gives a very strong stereoscopic feeling. Iron meteorite is very hard to be carved ,but this one is made very delicately, which is very difficult. 12th century Length: 19.5cm
