The Muonionalusta meteorites come from a very remote area in the northern Taiga, where they were preserved by permafrost and glaciers, many thousand years.
About 1 million years ago a massive, extraterrestrial iron mass fell in the northern area of today's Sweden. Upon entering the earth's atmosphere there must have been a huge explosion that ripped the asteroid into numerous fragments. The pieces then went down on a large stray field north of the Arctic Circle.
Scandinavia experienced many ice ages, therefore thick and heavy ice sheets pushed repeatedly from north to south. As a result, the normal pattern of the scattered field has been changed.

The official first record was in 1906, when two children found an exceptionally heavy and rusty part near the small village Kitkiöjärvi. The piece came later in the hands of experts that regarded it as an iron meteorite.

The new Muonionalusta meteorite was named after a small town near the locality. In the years 1946 and 1963 two more meteorites were found. The first (15 kg) was in the earthwork construction in Kitkiöjoki, southeast of Kitkiöjärvi found. The second meteorite was also found in Kitkiöjoki during the expansion of a woodland path.

Due to the earth movements during the various ice ages, the Muonionalusta fragments are usually 1 to 5 meters deep in the earth. They are naturally rounded like tumbled stones by their movement in the soil.
Since the scattered field is north of the Arctic Circle, the meteorite hunting is limited by climatic and other factors. Many years passed without further discovery. Only in the last 20 years, several expeditions found new meteorites.

The meteorites found were classified as iron meteorite, fine Octahedrite Class IVA. The Muonionalusta meteorites are among the meteorites with the most beautiful etch pattern. Cut and etched revealing perfect Widmannstätten pattern, and sometimes inclusions of rare minerals such as Troilite or Stishovit.
