Description

The Gibeon meteorite was first recorded in 1836 and was likely part of a massive and ancient fall. Gibeon is from the Namib Desert in Western Namibia. No impact crater has ever been found, but the fall site has produced specimens that have spanned a large area.

Gibeon is classified has a medium octahedrite and displays a complex and beautiful Widmanstätten pattern when cut and etched in the lab. Most Gibeons are angular in appearance, likely the result of in-flight explosions, terrestrial weathering, or both. Specimens of this marvelous meteorite also display thumbprints (regmaglypts) on their surface, indications of ablation during its flight through Earth’s atmosphere.
