    Description

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

    This truly phenomenal, geometric representation of material from the Muonionalusta Meteorite from Sweden is something to behold with an intriguing shape that defines the specimen. Featuring a muted yet still shiny surface, it exhibits full coverage of the Widmanstätten pattern, the result of the two Nickel-Iron alloys of Iron Meteorites: Kamacite and Taenite. This most unusual presentation is clearly spectacular in form but also presents the qualities of Muonionalusta with elegance and charm. This singular example weighs a hefty 567 grams and shows only minor inconsistencies over its many faces.
    Overall Measurements: 1.95 x 1.94 x 1.94 inches (4.95 x 4.94 x 4.92 cm), weighs 567 grams

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