Muonionalusta Meteorite

Regular price $35.00

A nicely presented piece of authentic meteorite, complete with description of fall location and meteorite analysis. This meteorite was first discovered in 1096, near the Muoino River on the border between Finland and Sweden. It is derived from the core of an extinct planet that was blown apart billions of years ago. 

According to our best current understanding, the parent body that Muonionalusta came from was one of the earliest bodies to take shape during the formation of our solar system. The beautiful crystalline patterns within these meteorites are known as Widmanstatten patterns, and are unique to meteorites. How very cool to own a piece of a shooting star!!
