Meteorite di Gabaon. Fetta con motivo Widmanstatten - 21.5 g

Gibeon was first found in Namibia in 1838. It is classified as a fine octahedrite type IVA, iron meteorite. As an iron meteorite, it probably comes from the core of asteroids that were destroyed by impacts with other bodies. It is an alloy of iron-nickel mainly although it contains other trace elements. Gibeon is one of the most sought-after meteorites. It was easily available decades ago but in the last years many jewelry makers have been working with this meteorite and its scarcity has augmented. In this auction a slice is offered. It is very aesthetic and shows the classic Widmanstatten pattern, the form of crystallization of iron in space when cooling down 1 Celsius degree per million years. The pattern is very fine and reflects light in different directions. Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591. Last picture shows the strewnfield where the meteorite is found. Packages are usually sent the morning after the auction. Shipping is combined in all my listings - if you win multiple items, only one shipping cost is paid. Do not miss this opportunity!
