Gibeon Meteorite - Namibia
Gibeon is a meteorite that fell in prehistoric times in Namibia. It was named after the nearest town, Gibeon. This very beautiful and unusual meteorite was first found in 1836, although native inhabitants knew about it before then. Most specimens show flight markings and evidence of a violent atmospheric breakup. It has a fine octahedrite pattern when etched and is very resistant to rust because of the tight fitting crystals, lack of inclusions, and high nickel content. Radiometric dating places the age of crystallization of the iron-nickel metal in the Gibeon at 4 billion years.
