Gibeon Meteorite, 474 grams


Item: metm199
This genuine Gibeon meteorite weighs 474 grams (1.04 pounds)
Gibeon Meteorite Dimensions: 3.5" x 2.2 x 1.8"
Discovered in Namibia
Price: $1065.00
This genuine Gibeon individual meteorite has all natural surfaces with some very well formed thumb-prints or regmaglypts which were produced by intense heat and ablation as it passed into and through earth's atmosphere. The surfaces are in very good condition. This natural Gibeon meteorite was discovered at the Gibeon meteorite field in Great Namaland, Namibia. Gibeon meteorites are classified as fine octahedrites, type IVA. Gibeon meteorites are composed entirely of the two crystalline iron-nickel mineral varieties taenite and kamacite. The chemistry of Gibeon meteorites is approximately 91% iron, 8% nickel, 0.5% cobalt, 0.04% phosphorous, along with trace amounts of gallium, germanium and iridium. Gibeon meteorites display beautiful designs known as Widmanstatten patterns when the surface is etched. These patterns show the intergrown crystalline structure of the taenite and kamacite.

Nantan Iron Meteorite, 7.68 pounds

This unique item is sold.
Item: metm137_nantan-meteorite
This is a natural Nantan Iron Meteorite weighing 3.49 kilograms (7.68 pounds)
Genuine Nantan Iron Meteorite Dimensions: 7.8" long x 5.6" wide x 1.8" thick
Discovered at Yaozhai, Nantan, Guangxi Province, China
Price: $523.50
This genuine Nantan meteorite has a relatively flat shape (see a side view of this natural Nantan meteorite). This natural Nantan meteorite specimen was collected in 2004. It is in natural condition and makes a very nice collector specimen just as it is, although it also could be polished or sawn and then etched to show its amazing Widmanstatten octahedral pattern of intergrown crystallized iron and nickel. See also a back-view photo of this genuine Nantan meteorite. The Nantan meteorite fall is one of the very rare witnessed iron meteorite falls on Earth. It fell from the northwest in May of 1516 during the reign of Chinese emperor Zhendge, with falling stars as bright as lightning that "waved like snakes & dragons" and then disapeared in a few seconds. Centuries passed with no further record until 1958 during the severe steel shortage of chairman Mao Tsetung's "Great Leap Forward" program when even the local farmer's cooking pots were melted down to produce steel. Some farmers at Nantan then discovered heavy iron rich rocks that they were unable to melt. Government investigators arrived and determined the "iron ore" to be meteorites!

We have genuine iron nickel meteorites from several locations worldwide: Gibeon Meteorites, Sikhote-Alin Meteorites, Nantan Meteorites, Muonionalusta Meteorites, and Campo Del Cielo Meteorites.

See also our page displaying genuine Gibeon Meteorite Spheres!

Iron-nickel meteorites are thought to have formed from molten planetary core material which cooled very slowly out in space.

Moldavite Necklace Tektites: Indochinite tektites

The transparent green natural Moldavite is a natural silicate glass tektite. Moldavite and other tektites are thought to have formed from the extreme heat and pressure produced during a meteorite impact on the surface of the earth.

During some meteorite impacts, it is believed that both the surface of the earth and the meteorite itself melt together and are thrown or splashed into the air by the force of the meteorite impact's explosion, fusing into natural glass tektites which cooled quickly while flying up into the air and then falling back down to the earth.

See our page displaying genuine moldavite jewelry, with all natural moldavite jewelry designs including beautiful moldavite necklaces and genuine moldavite rings.

Moldavite Tektite: Libyan desert glass tektite

See also our genuine Tektites including the natural Libyan Desert Glass Tektites, and our page displaying Genuine Moldavite.

We also have genuine Tektite Jewelry available in rings, pendants and necklaces. Wind blown desert sands sculpt the Libyan desert glass tektites into interesting shapes with a semi-polished natural surface finish. Those who trek to Eastern Egypt's uninhabited regions in search of these Lybian desert glass tektites risk much as the region is one of Earth's most inhospitable places, and finding a medjool date palm oasis is very unlikely!
