Iron Meteorite is Muonionalusta from Sweden

Moldavite from Czech Republic

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 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.

Moldavite is a green translucent silica meteoric glass created by a large cosmic velocity meteorite which vaporized when it struck the earth in Nordlingen, Germany, creating the Reis Crater, approximately 14.8 million years ago. A small percentage of that vapor was propelled into the ionosphere by the impact explosion through the hole punched in the earth's dense atmosphere. When this silica vapor reached the cold of outer space, it condensed then solidified and fell back to earth creating a strewn field of green tektite, several hundred miles away in the Moldau River Valley north of Prague, Czechoslovakia. Thus the name Moldavite. Moldavite is one of the rarest varieties of tektite.
