Muonionalusta meteorite is used for their production. It is the stone of extraterrestrial origin, which is more than four billion years old. It came to the Earth about 800 000 years ago due to the celestial bodies’ collision. The iron meteorite was found only in 1906 by a simple village boy on the shore of Muonio River and was named after it. Muonionalusta meteorite survived four ice ages. It features special geometric patterns – the so-called "Widmanstätten pattern” that emerged as a result of crystallization of minerals in the outer space.
