DescriptionMuonionalusta Meteorite End Cut Pair
Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)
A complete individual Muonionalusta meteorite was cut in half providing this "2-for-1" offering with two similar end cuts. The shiny, silver surfaces exhibit intense Widmanstätten patterning and appear to have been Rhodium-plated to ensure stability. The duality of the pieces having a rugged exterior and a vibrant core, especially one so dramatic and brilliant, is impressive. With a combined total weight of 8 pounds (3.65 kg), the pair offers a substantial quantity of meteoric material. The display potential of this dynamic duo seems limitless, as the two-part offering can be shown together or opposed - or as individual specimens.
Overall Measurements: 4.23 x 3.41 x 3.06 inches (10.75 x 8.67 x 7.77 cm), total weight 3.65 kilograms (8.04 pounds)
