Muonionalusta Meteorite Cube
Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
Meteorites can be transformed into unique shapes such as this
elegant cubic form. This 2-inch example weighs a substantial 989
grams and each face of the six-sided geometric object 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 and related
