Muonionalusta Meteorite: The Oldest Meteorite To Have Fallen On The Earth
The Earth is constantly bombarded with projectiles every day. Fortunately, a vast majority of these materials evaporate or falls into the sea, but sometimes they also happen to hit the surface. These are called meteorites. Imagine you could see everything a meteorite has seen all through its years of traveling. It could educate us so much about the world we live in! Meteorites are among the oldest things we find on earth. Actually, some are even older than the planet we live on - and probably even our solar system. One such old meteorite is Muonionalusta.
The history of Muonionalusta meteorite
In spite of the fact that it struck our planet a million years ago and endured 4 ice ages, the first ever part of the Muonionalusta meteorite was just found in 1906. It was named after the stream Muonio, at the border between Sweden and Finland, above the Arctic Circle, where it was found.
In 1906, a few kids found an exceptionally heavy and rusty 'stone' near a village called Kitkiöjärvi. They took it home and some way or the other it found its way to researchers, who could decipher its true nature. And that’s when Muonionalusta meteorite was named.
The nature of Muonionalusta
Muonionalusta meteorites can be found in an area as large as 40km x 20km. They are among the meteorites with the most alluring etch patterns. Cut and etched, the interior reveals impeccable Widmannstätten design and inclusions like Troilite. The outside, when untreated, resembles a rusty bark. Strangely, some Muonionalusta meteorites are very weathered, though others are in excellent shape for their high terrestrial age of 800,000 years. Scientists say that maybe permafrost helped to preserve their state.
The benefits of Muonionalusta
In general, meteorites are revered as sacred gifts from God or the Universe. They are said to assist in spiritual growth, given to their high vibrating nature. They also enhance psychic abilities and help people in connecting with beings from other realms. Meditation with a Muonionalusta meteorite helps one to receive and channel information about the possibility of living a life in another galaxy. While this has no scientific background, most astrologers believe it to be true and use the stone in their daily practices.
Muonionalusta is a timeless stone, which reminds us once again of the vastness of the universe. You don’t have to be an astrologer to own a Muonionalusta meteorite.
