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

    The natural elegance of the cubic shape translates to even smaller examples like this square meteorite. While the dimensions are not large, this cube weighs a quite substantial 577 grams. Each face of the six-sided geometric form exhibits the amazing Widmanstätten pattern of cross-etched lines, diagnostic of a number of iron meteorites. This specimen is beautiful from every angle as each square surface could be the primary display face of this exceptional example. This block features an inherent rough nature but is in excellent condition. This meteoric product would be a superb addition to any collection of meteorites.
    Overall Measurements: 1.66 x 1.65 x 1.66 inches (4.22 x 4.19 x 4.21 cm), weighs 577 grams

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
