    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]
