Unlock the Mysterious Powers of the Muonionalusta Meteorite
The rock comes from the Muonionalusta meteorite, which hit the earth several million years ago and was found in 1906 in Kiruna, Sweden.
If you're looking to add a unique and awe-inspiring piece of jewelry to your collection, the Muonionalusta meteorite might just be what you're looking for. This rare and ancient rock has a fascinating history that stretches back millions of years.
The Muonionalusta meteorite was first discovered in 1906 in Kiruna, Sweden. It's believed to be the oldest known meteorite, estimated to be about 45,653 million years old. This space rock is made up of iron and is said to contain healing properties and benefits.
In 1910, Professor A.G. Hogbom publicly announced the discovery of a meteorite, which he named "Muonionalusta" after a location near the Muonio River. The name can be difficult to pronounce for some: it is pronounced as [mu -o-ni-o-na-lu-sta] or /Moo-oh-ne-oh-nah-loo-stah/ and means "food on the bottom of Munio River".
Later on, professor Nils Göran David Malmqvist also conducted in-depth meteorite research in 1948. And he found that Muonionalusta may be the oldest known meteorite (45,653 million years old). Scientifically, it marks the first discovery of ultra-quartz in iron meteorites. Studies have shown that it is the oldest meteor that visited the Earth during the Quaternary period about a million years ago and was the iron core of an asteroid. When it fell on our planet, it shattered into many pieces.
Stishovite is a high-pressure polymorph of Si02. It is a scarce mineral and only found in the context of a few meteorite impact structures. Meteorite quartz is impossible to find in an asteroid with an iso-nuclear pressure matrix. Therefore, one can boldly assume that the formation of stalagmites in the Muonionalusta meteorite is related to the impact event. A 2010 study reported the dating of lead isotopes in the Muonionalusta meteorite and concluded that stishovite came from an impact event hundreds of millions of years ago.
Muonionalusta Meteorite Geological Properties
Muonionalusta is a very rare and large meteorite slice from Sweden.
At one point, the Muonionalusta meteorite was part of an asteroid and was the iron core of that asteroid. It shattered into many pieces when it fell on our planet, and meteorite hunters have been searching for treasure in the area for years. In fact, it's estimated that over 40 pieces of the Muonionalusta meteorite have been found to date.
This meteorite is particularly unique due to its age and the fact that it contains stishovite, a rare mineral only found in a few meteorite impact structures. This mineral is thought to be related to the impact event that caused the formation of the stalagmites in the Muonionalusta meteorite.
One of the most fascinating things about the Muonionalusta meteorite is its aesthetic beauty. The exquisite Widmannstätten pattern that appear on the surface of this space rock are truly unique and can't be reproduced on Earth. These patterns arise when a liquid alloy of iron and nickel cools down very slowly in low-gravity conditions – in other words, by only 1 degree Celsius every thousand years.
Are Meteorites Radioactive?
No. The wearable meteorite beads are carefully processed for safety wear. Meteorites contain radioactive elements, but not significantly more than any terrestrial rock. And those crafted for daily wear pieces are taken special care of by AWNL.
Differentiate Meteorites, Meteoroids, or Meteors
Meteoroids are space rocks. When the meteoroids enter Earth’s atmosphere at high speed, they will burn up as a fireball, called a shooting star or meteor. And when the meteors hit the earth and survive the trip, the remaining material on the planet is called a meteorite.
What Are the Muonionalusta Meteorite Benefits?
The Muonionalusta meteorite is believed to contain healing properties and benefits that can help with emotional balance and spiritual growth. It's known to resonate with the Crown chakra, which is believed to provide extraterrestrial awareness and improve mental clarity. Jewelry pieces made of this material can also serve as an original and unique gift to those fascinated by astral travels, giving them a journey through space and time.
Meteorite Value - Why Is Muonionalusta Meteorite So Valuable?
“The Muonionalusta meteorite is truly something special, " says astrophysicist Dr. Thomas Müller, based at Munich’s Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics. He is a scientific adviser to the BMW NIGHT SKY project and an enthusiastic Muonionalusta meteorite. It has proved to be the oldest iron meteorite we have on Earth. Its value also lies in its extraordinary aesthetics, as the exquisite Widmanstätten patterns are marked on this meteorite.
Whether you're a jewelry enthusiast or simply fascinated by the mysteries of the cosmos, the Muonionalusta meteorite is an incredible addition to any collection. With its rare beauty and powerful energy, it's a truly unique and captivating piece that's sure to leave a lasting impression.
