Metaphysical Meaning: This gorgeous meteorite has endured four Ice Ages, teaching you the power of perseverance. Muonionalusta is as old as time, bearing the answers of the cosmos within its matrix. It is an attractive meteorite for philosophers, spiritual leaders, and those wishing to expand their consciousness. Muonionalusta also encourages you to participate in artistic endeavors and proves that art has no boundaries.
Type: Muonionalusta is an Iron Meteorite.
Very Rare Slice of Meteorite from Sweden.
The Muonionalusta meteorites come from a very remote area in the northern Taiga, where they were preserved by permafrost and glaciers, many thousand years.
About 1 million years ago a massive, extraterrestrial iron mass fell in the northern area of today’s Sweden. Upon entering the earth’s atmosphere there must have been a huge explosion that ripped the asteroid into numerous fragments. The pieces then went down on a large stray field north of the Arctic Circle.
Scandinavia experienced many ice ages, therefore thick and heavy ice sheets pushed repeatedly from north to south. As a result, the normal pattern of the scattered field has been changed.
The meteorites found were classified as iron meteorite, fine Octahedrite Class IVA. The Muonionalusta meteorites are among the meteorites with the most beautiful etch pattern. Cut and etched revealing perfect Widmannstätten pattern, and sometimes inclusions of rare minerals such as Troilite or Stishovit.
The iron-nickel alloy in the planet's core slowly crystallizes to form an octahedral structure at a cooling rate of 1° per million years. After polishing and pickling, an X-cross-like pattern can be seen. This model is from the inside out . The structure, any part cut and pickled, shows patterns that humans cannot imitate. This can be used to identify real and fake.
Meteorites are the core components of planets in the universe. After the planet is broken for some reason, the core components enter the universe and fall on the earth. When you pick it up, it's a meteorite.
Westenden pattern: There are three types of meteorites, iron meteorites, stony meteorites and stony-iron meteorites. Among them, the main components of iron meteorites are iron-nickel alloy components, which exist in elemental form. The identification of most iron meteorites only needs to rely on the dimension pattern. The so-called dimensional pattern, the full name of the translation is the Westenden pattern, is the arrangement of the iron and nickel element crystals in the meteorite, criss-crossing, the dimensional pattern is theoretically formed by the crystallization of one degree of cooling every million years in the microgravity environment of space. The iron-nickel structure can only be revealed under the action of nitric acid or other pickling solutions. The top scientific laboratories of mankind have tried countless times to simulate the cooling environment to imitate the dimension pattern, but it was all in vain. So far it has been impossible to imitate! The iron-nickel crystal Westenden of iron meteorites has clear and beautiful lines. The charm of gems lies in fire, and the charm of meteorites lies in luster. Most of the time, the dimensional patterns of the meteorites are not noticeable, but they are just crystal lines, but the refraction of the light by the meteorites will give you an instant surprise when the angle changes, and the dazzling silver light will suddenly be refracted. But it disappeared in an instant. This is an infinite charm and surprise, a gift from the universe and space.
