Australian company Starpics has created a completely unique pair of guitar picks made from meteors.

Said to be around 4 billion years old, Gibeon meteorites were discovered in 1836 in Namibia, Africa, where their sale and export were banned by the local government.

Despite that fact, over twenty-five tons of the meteorites have been recovered and it is the most commonly found meteorite on the market today.

One of the most interesting things about the meteorites is the pattern of Widmanstatten lines created by their frigid passage through space. These patterns are preserved in the picks and can be seen in the picture above.

These guitar picks are priced at $4,674 and guaranteed to last forever.
