|The Gibeon meteorite was initially
discovered on the East side of the Fish River in Namaland, Namibia,
in 1836. Tons of this meteorite have been recovered over the years
and, with the use of metal detectors, the fall area has been cleaned
of material. Gibeon has been classified as an Iron, fine
Octahedrite, IVA, with silicate inclusions. Lager specimens exhibit
some of the best "thumbprints" known in meteorites.

GUJBA, Nigeria - Witnessed Fall
|The Meteoritical Bulletin states
that a conical shaped meteorite fell in a corn field near the
village of Bogga Dingare after a bright fireball was witnessed and
an explosion was heard. The fall occurred on 3 April 1984, and the
material was classified as a Bencubbin-like meteorite, Most of the
material was hammered into many pieces and was dispersed among the
local people. Gujba is one of the most fascinating of all meteorites
- having metal blobs which give the appearance of chondrules within
a stony matrix. The partial slice offered here weighs 1.89 grams and
is priced reasonably at $141.75.

A single weathered stone weighing 15.5 kg was
found in a wheat field near Haxtun, Phillips County, Colorado, in August 1975.
Haxtun is an L4 chondrite with a rich brown matrix and very little metal
flecking. These specimens were obtained from Blaine Reed many years ago and were
"lost" in my office until recently.
fragments were found inside and outside the Henbury craters in the Northern
Territory of Australia. This meteorite is classified as an Iron, medium
Octahedrite, IIIA, with partially recrystallized Kamacite structure. The
specimens offered here were legally exported to another dealer and we shared
them between us. Note that some are cleaned and some are in their natural found
state. The price per gram is as good as you will find anywhere.
