Description

Gibeon Meteorite

Gibeon meteorites have been used for centuries by the Nama people to make tools and weapons.  In 1836, samples were analyzed by the English and confirmed to be Fine Octahedrite iron meteorites, Group IV A.  They are found in one of the most meteorite-strewn fields on earth, over 60 miles wide and 170 miles long, near the village of Gibeon in what is now Namibia.  The Gibeon meteor is believed to have fallen in pre-historic times.  Its chemical composition is 90% iron, 8% nickel, 0.4% cobalt, and 0.04% phosphorus.
