Muonionalusta Meteorite Bangle
Muonionalusta - Iron fine octahedrite - (IVA)
Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
Here is a fine example of creativity. This striking bangle bracelet
was cut out of a larger piece of the Muonionalusta Meteorite from
Sweden. The entire surface of this bracelet has the distinct and
attractive Widmanstätten pattern characteristic of Iron Meteorites.
To achieve this latticework pattern, a piece of the meteorite must
be cut, polished and etched with acid. This stunning bangle
bracelet measures 2.44 inches (6.22 cm) in diameter, and is 0.37
inches (0.95 cm) wide. It has been Rhodium-plated to prevent any
natural deterioration to the Iron meteorite. It is in pristine
condition and comes with a label attesting to its authenticity.
[Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
