DescriptionLADY'S METEORITE WATCH
Gibeon - Iron, fine octahedrite
Great Nama Land, Namibia
Gibeon is among the most popular of all collectible meteorites, originating from a massive fall some thousands of years ago near the village of Gibeon in the Kalahari. Local tribesmen have used it for hundreds of years to forge blades and other tools, but here its decorative qualities are exploited in as the face of an attractive lady's watch.
The watch face displays pronounced Widmanstätten patterns in the silvery metal, a fascinating lattice of criss-crossing lines in shimmering metallic shades. Mounted with brass hands in a stainless steel case, the watch was made by Starborn Creations and comes with their COA #6668.
