Lot Details
Sculptural Gibeon
Iron, fine octahedrite
Great Nama Land, Namibia, Africa

Dramatic, shard-like edges and a splendid natural desert patina recommend this Gibeon meteorite, which displays like a work of contemporary art. In recent times, local Namibian tribesmen have located Gibeon specimens with the aid of metal detectors, a modern improvement over methods of their ancestors who fashioned recovered specimens into spear-points and other tools.
