Description of the Muonionalusta Meteorite from the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muonionalusta Wikipedia page:
"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 here this meteorite has experienced four ice ages. It was unearthed from a glacial moraine in the northern tundra. A strongly weathered surface covered with cemented faceted pebbles leaves no doubt that its sojourn on Earth has been long and dramatic."
    "The Muonionalusta is a meteorite classified as fine octahedrite, type IVA (Of) 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" (NB: The number of known pieces has increased during the last many years due to meteorite hunters systematic search in the area with their metal detectors. On this page I (below) describe Muonionalusta meteorites sold in Sweden and I can mention that on 19.01.2014 there are 34 larger full Muonionalusta-meteorites for sale on eBay.com). "Other fragments have been found in a 25-by-15-kilometre (16 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 meteorite known to man, marks the first occurrence of Stishovite in an iron meteorite."

Muonionalusta meteoriter - certificates
During the last two years I have noticed that several Muonionalusta meteorites have been sold at the Lauritz.com auction house' showroom in Stockholm, Sweden - and it could be a local meteorite hunter who is selling his finds. At least there have been MANY larger Muonionalusta meteorites for sale here - see my list below - which do not claim to be complete for the specific seller.
    The reason I made this page was because Lauritz.com - for some strange reasons do NOT offer certificates on the meteorites - "instead" they have a lifelong "get your money back"-guarantee if an item is not what it is described as. But even this is OK - I would like to know the origin of the meteorites I eventually buy (I now do know the full story of these meteorites listed below. Maybe I'll tell you that story some day!).

thomasThomas Österberg
Among meteorite hunters a welknown person and he and a friend of him, Daniel Svensson, have their own home page dedicated to the Muonionalusta Meteroites: MuonionalustaMeteorites.com

Thomas is a very helpful person (which you also can see from the video Meteorite Men S02E06 Muonionalusta, Sweden 7 December 2010) and resently I emailed him and asked if he had any idea of who is selling these many meteorites at the auction house Lautirtz.com in Stockholm. In my opinion it could only be a local person and Thomas kindly answered back and told me that I'm right!

This sounds obvious to me. So, for your enjoyment, I'll list the lauritz.com meteorites - the next 4.5 billion years ;-) Besides, I have showed this page to my friends at Club Space Rock where Rogan Hennie said: "They do all look like authentic Muonionalusta's to me. Way to go on securing a couple for yourself!" (I've already done that :-)

All meteorites at the Lauritz.com have the exact same description:
"Järnmeteorit, nedslag för över 100.000 år sedan. Uppgrävd 2,5 mil norr om Kitkiöjärvi, Tornedalen.
I trakterna kring byn Kitkiöjärvi slog en järnhaltig dvärgplanet ner någon gång mellan 800.000-114.000 år sedan. Kroppen splittrades i atmosfären innan den slog i marken. Den första meteoren i området hittades 1906 av två barn. Förutom järn har flera ovanliga metaller konstaterats i meteoriter från Kikiöjärvi, därbland Troilite (FeS) och Stishovite (SiO2) "

In English:
"Iron Meteorite from about 2.5 miles north from Kitkiöjärvi, Tornedalen, Sweden.
In the area around the village Kitkiöjärvi an iron dwarf planet hit the earth sometime between 800,000 to 114,000 years ago. The body was shattered in the atmosphere before it hit the ground. The first meteorite in the area was found in 1906 by two children. In addition to iron, several rare metals found in meteorites from Kikiöjärvi, among these Troilite (FeS) and Stishovite (SiO2)."

Comments on bidding and bid-history for some of the meteorites
I have noticed a few abnormal situations as two bidders (1238239 and 1169098) both let items they won be put for sale again - but continued to bid on the relisted items so they won them for a far lower price than the first time.

1. The first item was sold on 23.01.2014/10.02.2014: item no. 3262792/3290787
Here bidder no. 1238239 won it at a hammer stroke of 21,189 DKkr. which seems to be too much for him, so he probably used his right to cancel his bidding and the item went on sale again about 10 days after first sale. But the very same bidder won the same item again! But to a much lower hammer stroke, namely 7,120 DKkr.!

2. The second item was sold on 06.02.2014/18.02.2014: item no. 3286622/3301688
Here bidder no. 1169098 made the exactly same type of "stunt".

3. Two meteorites for sale on 16.01.2014 resulted in hammer strokes of 22,035 DKkr. and (item no. 3262790/3283652) and 10,170 DKkr. (item no. 3262793/3283650). Both items were won by the same bidder (our former mentioned bidder no. 1169098). BUT - they were put for sale again 27.01.2014, only 11 days after the first hammer stroke - and strange enough: Both auctions were then cancelled 28.01.2014!

I therefore contacted Lauritz.com/Aarhus and told them that I had noticed some very strange biddings behaviors. The day after, I received a phone call from "Lauritz.com Support" in Copenhagen and talked to "D.C." (only his initials are shown here), and I explained what I have noticed. At first he listened with "a half ear" and then told me that Lauritz.com had no complaints on the bidders I talked about.
    I then asked him why the auctions were cancelled but then he told me that he was very busy and had other things to do. I then said: "Wait a minute! YOU have ALL the time I need you to have to explain what I look upon as manipulation of bids! If so - this can't be what Lauritz.com would accept?". This made him calm down and he told me that he had to make some investigations before he could give me an answer.

A few days later I got an email from "D.C.": "I investigated why a few auctions on meteorites in Stockholm were completed and paid, but then came up for auction again and shortly afterwards canceled. The rules for payment and pickup are that this should be done within three days after the auction. You may agree a later pick-up directly with the specific showroom.
    As far as the meteorites no. 3262790 and 3262793 concerns (bidder no. 1169098. TN), it was a customer outside Sweden who won and paid for these two meteorites - but did not get them picked up within a month, and he made no arrangement with the showroom for picking them up.
    That's what happened to these items. As the buyer was aware that his two meteorites had been put up for auction again he contacted Lauritz.com Stockholm, who subsequently chose to give the original purchaser opportunity to get his two meteorites, with a short pickup date. So that explains the reason for these two auctions were stopped a second time".

But this is obviously not correct! Item no. 3262790 was sold on 16.01.2014 but listed again with new no. 3283652 to be sold on 03.02.2014 - and already on 27.01.2014 - only 11 days, not a month - after the first bid was placed on the relisted item.
    Similar, item no. 3262793 was also sold on 16.01.2014 and listed again with new no. 3283650 to be sold on 03.02.2014 - and already on 27.01.2014 - again only 11 days, not a month - after the first bid was placed on the relisted item.

Another item in question:

4. This bidder (1169098) also bought item no. 3286626 on 06.02.2014 in competition with bidder no. 458218 (hammer stroke 9,323 DKkr.) but already five days later, on 11.02.2014, it was listed again as no. 3301689 - and sold on 18.02.2014 to the very same bidder no. 1169098, but this time to a much lower hammer stroke: 5,244 DKkr. Exactly as desribed with the sale in 1. and 2.
    "D.C." then told me that this behavior is not allowed on Lauritz.com and that bidder no. 1169098 had received a warning that if he does it again - his account will be closed.

5. Furthermore one bidder, 458218, was very aggressive in his bids so one could think that it was the very same person who put these meteorites for sale. To this "D.C." told me that Lauritz.com has no complaints about bidder no. 458218!


It's extremely difficult to analyze the bidder's behaviors but as you see some of the bidders don't follow the rules and some explanations from Lauritz.com are in conflict with what really happened.

Finally I asked "D.C." if it was possible to provide a list of meteorites there had been for sale at Lauritz.com but "D.C." told me that "the IT-people at Lauritz.com had no time to spend time on this, so unfortunately you could not get the requested list" - Therefore I have found these above listed meteorites searching for Muonionalusta-meteorites using several different search engines.
