All meteorites are supposed to be older than the oldest terrestrial rock. But Muonionalusta is thought to be the meteorite that has been the longest on Earth. Its estimated time of arrival is 1 million years. It fell in Northern Sweden, near the current 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.
Remark: This piece was found by me in 2019 on my hunting expedition in 𝐌𝐔𝐎𝐍𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐀𝐋𝐔𝐒𝐓𝐀. It is provided with Coordinates and because of that the value is higher than usual.
The piece has been cleaned and underwent a rigorous stabilization process for 6 months. It has been part of my personal collection for all this time but the time has come to find a new home.
Possibility of making a stand, ask for more information.
