Gibeon meteorites are very beautiful and unusual. They were first found in 1836, although native inhabitants knew about them before then. Most specimens show flight markings and evidence of a violent atmospheric breakup. They display a beautiful, fine octahedrite pattern when etched and are very resistant to rust because of the tight-fitting crystals, lack of inclusions, and high nickel content.
In Honor of Memorial Day, the Shop will be Closed, Monday, May 31st.
Hi folks! COVID cases are down! So, we are allowed to have up to 25 people in the shop &15 people in the museum. However, on Saturdays, the museum will remain closed and used only as an area for those waiting to shop.
(However, if we're slow we can sneak you down there, if you like.)
For now, face covering & use of hand sanitizer are still required when entering.
We ask that people please not come in with large groups, and please limit their stays to under an hour, so others can have the opportunity to also do their shopping.
If we have customers in line, waiting to get in, please be aware of that and be considerate.
Thanks again for your continued understanding & support!
