DescriptionMuonionalusta Meteorite "Crater" Pendant
Iron fine octahedrite - IVA
Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
This is an exceptional meteorite pendant featuring the rare Muonionalusta meteorite from Sweden. This piece has been etched with nitric acid to reveal the unmistakable Widmanstätten pattern. The pattern was created by the intertwining of kamacite and taenite, two minerals with an extraterrestrial origin. The pendant is made out of stainless steel and features a crater-like patterning with the Muonionalusta meteorite prominently displayed in the middle plated and covered with a protective clear crystal Quartz. The pendant bail has a "starburst" design engraved on it and the back also features the same "starburst" design with the word "Meteorite" engraved below. This pendant can be worn at any length and is in excellent condition. This piece is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
