GIBEON, Namibia

Beautiful meteorite. This fine octahedrite displays the classis Widmanstatten pattern typical of iron meteorites. The high nickel content results in the fine crystalline pattern and makes this meteorite highly maleable making it very suitable for knives, jewelry and other applications. 300kg. $150,000

The Gibeon Desert, Namibia, Africa

Nearly a million pounds of this beautiful meteorite is scattered over several thousand square kilometers of barren desert. It is plentiful, extremely easy to work, and a blessing from space for the Namibian people who collect it.
