    Muonionalusta Meteorite Cube
    Iron, IVA
    Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
    Found: 1906

    This partial meteorite cube is simply incredible measuring approximately 3 inches (7.7 cm) on each edge. In addition to its considerable size, with a weight of over 3.25 kilograms, the massive offering displays an impressive Widmanstätten patterning on all six surfaces of the blocky example. Made of Muonionalusta Meteorite from Sweden thought to be one of the oldest known meteorites on Earth. This is a really large piece relative to most cubic forms of meteorite and has both immense visual appeal as well as the story behind it being associated as the famed arctic meteorite. This attention getter is also a conversation starter.
