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.
Unfortunately, Evanston has reinstated mask mandates, due to the Covid Delta Variant.
We know it's a hassle. But, it's the law and we ask everyone to comply when entering the shop.
Road work is ongoing.
But, the public parking lot will remain available just West of the shop, at 721 Main.
On Saturdays, you will also be able to keep parking on the street.
Thank you again for your support & understanding!
