    • Meteorite Type: Iron, IVA
    • Weight: 5.8 kilograms
    • Approximate Measurements: 241 mm x 133 mm x 84 mm
    • Additional Information: Most Gibeons are quite angular in appearance, likely the result of in-flight explosions, or terrestrial weathering, or both. In rare cases, complete individuals are recovered, and this specimen is one such example. Weighing in at an impressive 5.8 kg (12 3/4 lbs), this gorgeous iron meteorite shows abundant regmaglypts (thumbprints) on its surface — indicators of ablation during its furious flight through Earth’s atmosphere. It is presented in as-found condition with attractive dark red and brown desert patina. In one photo it seems to resemble an owl; in another an elongated boot, hence its name. Please note the field number "5.8," likely painted by the finder at the time of its discovery in the Namib Desert. Field numbers are usually seen to add a modest amount of uniqueness, value, and collectibility to a meteorite, but this number could easily be removed if so desired.
      Further: This fine specimen shows an extremely rare small natural hole and its position is indicated in one image by a white string.
