History of the Gibeon Meteorite: This beautiful and unusual meteorite was first found in Gibeon, Great Nama Land, Namibia in 1836, although native inhabitants knew about it before then. Complete specimens show flight markings and evidence of a violent atmospheric breakup of an asteroid or an exploded start and radiometric dating places the age at around 4-billion years old.
