Muonionalusta Swedish Meteor Specimen

Sale price$290.00 USD

The Muonionalusta meteorite is a meteorite which impacted northern Scandenavia west of the border between Sweden and Finland about one million years BCE. Studies have shown it to be the oldest discovered impacted meteorite in earth's history. Its makeup is part of the iron core or mantle of a planetoid which shattered into many pieces upon its fall on our planet. Since landing on Earth, the meteorite has experienced four ice ages.

This piece of meteorite is perfect for your collection. It has been cut and polished to show its gorgeous iron patterning and included in an authentication card and a custom magnetic lucite stand for it to be displayed on.

Because this specimen consists of primarily iron, we recommend keeping this specimen in a collector's case or cabinet where it will not be subjected to moisture.
