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

    This end cut from the Muonionalusta Meteorite from Sweden features a rather intense Widmanstätten pattern etched into the cut and polished surface of this irregularly shaped large end cut. A slight "ridge" results in a tiered aspect to the primary display surface, and its mottled exterior exhibits a unique blend of metallic silver with an etched aspect in contrast to patches of dark reddish-brown patina. Weighing a sizable 910 grams, this offering of the 'prehistoric' meteorite is singular in uniqueness and presentation.
    Overall Measurements: 5.48 x 2.56 x 1.50 inches (13.91 x 6.50 x 3.80 cm), weighs 910 grams

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