Muonionalusta Meteorite Cube
Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
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]
