The Earth is the third planet from the sun, which orbits once a year at a mean distance of 150 million km (93 million miles). It is the only planet scientists know to have life, this is thanks to the liquid water and the atmosphere that keeps life safe. Water covers 70 percent of the Earth's surface. The surface of the Earth is called the crust. This is split into a number of enormous plates, which have pushed and pulled against each other for millions of years, creating mountains, valleys and other features.
This Earth pendant is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied on a waxed cord. The information card is full colour on the front and has information on the reverse.
