Gibeon Meteorite Slice on a Key Ring - Large
We serve up outer space by the slice! A 1.5-inch x 1.0-inch slice of a Gibeon meteorite, that is! After we got our paws on this 4-billion-year old meteorite, we sliced it, diced it, and poured some delicious sauce (acid) on it to bring out the Widmanstätten pattern. It is a set of car keys that they won't want to lose!
Fully assembled on a key ring and ready to be sold in your gift shop or store! See our smaller version too!

Gibeon Meteorite History: Collision with earth is estimated to be 200-400 million years ago in the Gibeon area of Namibia, Africa during prehistoric times. Found in 1836 by a British explorer, Captain J.E. Alexander, although natives were familiar with these "metal rocks" for hundreds of years. Estimated, by radiometric dating, to be 4 billion years old and thought to be debris from an exploding super nova.
Sliced and etched with acid to show the Widmanstätten pattern
Resistant to rust due to tight fitting crystals, lack of inclusions, and high nickel content
