More Information

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.
