A million years ago, a planetoid of metallic composition and large size hit northern Scandinavia, in present-day Sweden. This meteorite is known by the name of Muonionalusta, and today it is the oldest meteorite of which there is evidence on Earth. It was discovered for the first time in 1906, and since then it has been possible to recover some specimens, usually of small size.
The specimen in this lot is a complete high quality and large-sized slice in excellent condition in which you can see a spectacular Widmanstätten pattern and a fusion crust around all its perimeter. This slice has been pressed so that the pattern shows just three directions, creating thus a perfect pattern, with lines that cross forming 60º angles, which is very rare to find. The inner structure of this meteorite is fine octahedrite.
Quality and size for a museum or a great collection. Very thinly cut to get a great surface area in relation to its weight. A fantastic addition to your collection. Do not miss this opportunity!
All our meteorites come with an IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) certificate, so we guarantee for life the authenticity of all our meteorites. Buy with guarantees.
Regards and best wishes.
