ABOUT THE METEORITE The Muonionalusta Meteorite is the oldest meteorite known to man. First discovered in 1906, the mysterious object from outer space features a stunning crystal structure with a criss-crossed pattern that doesn’t exist on Earth. Scientists were shocked to find a host of otherworldly minerals with mysterious names like daubréelite, schreibersite, akaganéite and troilite.
