Muonionalusta Meteorite Colloidals

The Muonionalusta is a meteorite classified as fine octahedrite, type IVA (Of) which impacted in northern Scandinavia, west of the border between Swedenand Finland, about one million years BCE.

The first fragment of the Muonionalusta was found in 1906 near the village of Kitkiöjärvi. Around forty pieces are known today, some being quite large. Other fragments have been found in a 25-by-15-kilometre (15.5 mi × 9.3 mi) area in the Pajala district of Norrbotten County, approximately 140 kilometres (87 mi) north of the Arctic Circle.

The meteorite was first described in 1910 by Professor A. G. Högbom, who named it "Muonionalusta", after a nearby place on the Muonio River. It was studied in 1948 by Professor Nils Göran David Malmqvist. The Muonionalusta, probably the oldest known meteorite (4.5653 billion years),marks the first occurrence of stishovite in an iron meteorite.

The name Muonionalusta is difficult for some to pronounce: ['mu-o-ni-o-na-lu-sta] or /MOO-oh-ne-oh-nah-loo-stah/ from the Muonio River (muoni- apparently means ‘food’); -(o)n- could be a needed connective; the final element alustameans ‘base, foundation, a stand, mat, tray’, thus probably ‘Munio (River) base’.


Studies have shown it to be the oldest discovered meteorite impacting the Earth during the Quaternary Period, about one million years ago. It is quite clearly part of the iron core or mantle of a planetoid, which shattered into many pieces upon its fall on our planet. Since landing on Earth the meteorite has experienced four ice ages. It was unearthed from a glacial moraine in the northern tundra. It has a strongly weathered surface covered with cemented faceted pebbles.

New analysis of this strongly shock-metamorphosed iron meteorite has shown a content of 8.4% nickel and trace amounts of rare elements—0.33 ppm gallium, 0.133 ppm germanium and 1.6 ppm iridium. It also contains the minerals chromite, daubréelite, schreibersite, akaganéite and inclusions of troilite. For the first time, analysis has proved the presence of a form of quartz altered by extremely high pressure—stishovite, probably a pseudomorphosis after tridymite. From the article "First discovery of stishovite in an iron meteorite":

Stishovite, a high pressure polymorph of SiO2, is an exceptionally rare mineral...and has only been found in association with a few meteorite impact structures.... Clearly, the meteoritic stishovite cannot have formed by isostatic pressure prevailing in the core of the parent asteroid.... One can safely assume then that stishovite formation (in the Muonionalusta meteorite) is connected with an impact event. The glass component might have formed directly as a shock melt....

A 2010 study reported the lead isotope dating in the Muonionalusta meteorite and concluded the stishovite was from an impact event hundreds of millions of years ago: "The presence of stishovite signifies that this meteorite was heavily shocked, possibly during the 0.4 Ga [billion years] old breakup event indicated by cosmic ray exposure...


Widmanstatten patterns

There are ‘patterns’ in the different types of meteors, in the Gibeon there is a gorgeous crystalline patterns known as Widmanstatten patterns, which is unique to meteorites. These patterns can only form over millions of years of cooling. It is such a unique condition that scientists cannot copy it here on Earth. These patterns actually tell a scientist how long it took for the molten meteorite to cool. It has been estimated that it took about 1000 years for these molten pieces of planetary core to cool by just 1 degree Celsius!

Only meteorites exhibit the Widmanstatten pattern and each piece of meteorite has its own unique pattern.  Lines and patterns are the result of cooling in outer space over billions of years and etching slices with dilute nitric acid allow these patterns known as “Widmanstatten lines” to be more visible.


Meteoric iron is used for alignment and balancing; it symbolizes the aptitude and strength required for endurance. Nickel is thought to purify the blood and increase the body's iron content.


Stress is meteorite central.  Uranus rules the parasympathetic nervous system, shocks, trauma and unexpected events that upset us.  Like cures like.  If you’re stressed out, traumatized, ect., with a transit or progression of Uranus to your natal chart, wearing meteorite can actually calm you down.  It’s a destressor. 

This energy brings “light” bulb time to our jammed up/clogged up and constipated right hemisphere of our brain.  It ‘sheds light’ so that we figure out another way to overcome a hurdle and get on with our lives.  Or with an idea or project.  You might say that Meteorite is the lightning of the gemstone world; it unclogs the debris in our right hemisphere so that we’re flushed clean with new possibilities.  When the psychic channels of the right hemisphere are cleaned out, amazing new ideas, intuitions and hunches can once more flow with ease.

   When you consider meteorites were once part of a planet, we can look at it metaphorically.  What in your life needs to be recobbled, redesigned, blown apart and put back together again?  Has your life suddenly blown up like this planet?  Are you feeling as if you are nothing but fragments of your former self?  Many of us experience a breakdown in order to get a breakthrough.  This can be on any level: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, or a combination.  If you feel your world is literally exploding apart and you are traumatized and paralyzed by the changes, Meteorite is just the energy you need.  It can help you redesign your life.
