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.
