Muonionalusta. 10kg. Collection

The Muonionalusta meteorite has been estimated to be on Earth for 1 million years. It fell in current northern Sweden, near the border with Finland. It was discovered in 1906 when workers were moving earth for the construction of a road. After that the meteorite was forgotten for decades until a new road was constructed a new meteorites appeared. A worker took a weird-looking rock to a mineral exhibition and one person identified it as a meteorite again. The typical Muonionalusta meteorite has rounded shapes caused by the several glaciar movements that have transported them for kilometers. It is classified as an IVA iron meteorite. This 10kg piece was the first one we found in the 2019 expedition.
