MUONIONALUSTA Meteorite - The Oldest Thing
As known as the oldest meteorite ever discovered, Muonionalusta impacted the Earth one million years ago in northern Scandinavia. It is the iron core of a planetoid.
This meteorite came from a planetoid that was formed in the dense gas and dust cloud that spun around a newly formed star that we now call the sun.
This is actually one of the earliest solids formed in our solar system. It is 20 million years older than the earth.
1 Million Years
Impacted in Northern Scandinavia, west of the border between Sweden and Finland, about one million years ago, the Muonionalusta, as known as the Swedish meteorite, is a Space rock and roll!
The first fragment of the Muonionalusta was found in 1906 near the village of Kitkiöjärvi, approximately 140 kilo meters north of the Arctic Circle. It is quite clearly part of the iron core or mantle of a planetoid, which shattered into many pieces upon its fall on our planet.
4 Ice Ages
Fallen in the northern part of Sweden 1million years ago, it is hidden under the northern light and waited for you for the past 4 ice ages. The thing experienced so much, far beyond what we can imagine. Wearing it, you are wearing the history of our space and time!
Found by Meteorite Hunters
They followed the trace of meteorite, like hunters, deep into deserted highland, woods and arctic to search for shooting-stars landed on the Earth.
Amazing Widmanstätten Pattern
If you cut the meteorite and etch the surface, a unique pattern emerges. The pattern you see here is called the Widmanstätten pattern. It only forms when extraordinary hot iron-nickel alloys are cooled down extremely slowly.

AWNL’s mother company has engaged in the Swedish Meteorite business for decades. In order to prevent rust and protect the meteorite, we invented the “Meteo-Protecta-Tech”. Our meteorite is coated with a hard resin and thick layer of rhodium to protect against scratches.
The AWNL silver collections are made with sterling silver. Tarnishing can result from exposure to the air and humidity over time. Storing your sterling silver in a cool, dry, and air-tight condition can offset some of the tarnishing. Keep your sterling silver away from water, pollutant heavy environments, and chlorine.
If your jewellery is tarnished, we recommend gentle cleaning with the dry soft cloth provided in the package.
White spots may appear in places where the gemstone was touched and can be removed by gentle rubbing with your fingers and "oiling" it.
