The Muonionalusta, like other nickel-iron meteorites is part of a Type-M asteroid and is over 4.5 Billion years old (older than earth). It has been on earth longer than others since it impacted nearly 1 million years ago. It is classified as a fine octahedrite, type IVA. The first fragment of the Muonionalusta was found in 1906 approximately 87 mi north of the Arctic Circle, in Norrbotten, Sweden. Around forty pieces are known today. This meteorite has been patiently waiting through four ice ages in order to be discovered and recycled into this new timepiece.
