Beads of Courage Mars Bead
NEW! We are thrilled to debut the exclusive, limited-edition Beads of Courage Mars Bead. Created and individually handcrafted by Beads of Courage Hall of Fame bead artist Robert Simmons, PhD, each bead is designed to resemble the Red Planet and is embedded with genuine bits of powdery dust from the planet Mars!
The authentic Mars dust was generously provided by Geoffrey Notkin, CEO of Aerolite Meteorites, Inc. and star of TV's "Meteorite Men." The dust comes from a Martian meteorite -- a piece of Mars that broke off from the planet and traveled through space, impacting Earth as a meteorite. The rare and precious dust is collected when a Martian meteorite is cut into slices in the lab.
Your glass Mars bead will arrive in a silver box, along with a Certificate of Authenticity from Aerolite Meteorites, Inc. and a fun art card describing the bead. The planet Mars is thought to symbolize energy, confidence, and perseverance. May your Mars bead always remind you to have courage and be bold!
