Iron (IVA) fine octahedrite. Gibeon is without a doubt, the best iron
on the market. It was first found in 1836, in the desert of Namibia.
Several thousand pieces have been found, many tons total known weight.
Gibeon is the most stable iron known, therefore it is very good for
use in jewelry and making other items out of meteorite. Thousands of
kilos have been cut up and used in this way. Gibeon used to be the most
plentiful meteorite, but is very difficult to acquire at this time,
due to the strewnfield depletion and the fact that export from Namibia
is illegal now. This is a crucial meteorite for ANY collection. The
Widmanstaaten pattern is the best fine octahedrite out there.
