The Muonionalusta, probably the oldest meteorite known to man, marks the first occurrence of stishovite in an iron meteorite. It is a meteorite classified as fine octahedrite, which impacted in northern Scandinavia, west of the border between Sweden and 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 15.5 miles × 9.3 mile area in the Pajala district of Norrbotten County, approximately 87 miles 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.

This is in it's raw untreated state and will need to be treated with natural oils or plated otherwise it may rust.
