Gibeon Meteorite Necklaces on 23-inch Gun Metal Ball Chain
We serve up outer space by the slice! A 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. All of this so you can wear the universe around your neck!

The 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.
