    A naturally sculptural specimen presented on a custom metal armature, this example of Gebel Kamil Meteorite is simply exquisite.

This rock weighs almost 2.5 kilograms (5.5 pounds) and is a museum quality specimen with a rare combination of natural beauty and size. The treasure from the Egyptian desert, this meteorite is an exceptional uncommon Iron with striking visual characteristics and outstanding form. The majority of the piece displays a wonderful dark skin.
