For the person who has everything give them a little ball of space with our Stunning Muonionsalusta Meteorite Sphere. For a gift that is out of this world and older than earth. 

This phenomenal piece makes a unique gift for fathers day, a birthday or a treat just for you. In the dynamically different frame you can view your extra-terrestrial sphere of natural history from any angle.

The meteorites are not only extremely rare, they are almost always buried! To make finding the specimens just a little harder Swedish law dictates that a license must be obtained, and then those pieces buried in the perma-frost must be excavated by hand.

Iron nickel meteorites, like the Muonionsalusta generally start as the very core of a planet, the amazing Widmanstätten patterns (unearthly metallic grids in shimmering shades of grey and silver seen when the meteorite is sliced) are formed only in space. The molten centre of a planet’s core is cooled to form this metal at one degree per million years, then when the iron is removed the striking nickel crystal formations can be seen.

During ancient times meteorite was considered far more valuable than gold. Tutankhamen was found with meteorite daggers in his tomb and the ancient myth of Thor’s hammer, has been attributed to prized rare meteorite.

Martha Jackson Meteorite comes in a display frame complete with a certificate of authenticity.
