THE GIBEON METEORITE

THE GIBEON METEORITE

THE GIBEON METEORITE

The 4-billion-year-old Gibeon Meteorite, weighing between 50 and 70 tons, burst into smaller fragments high in the atmosphere and fell to Earth sometime between 10,000 and 30,000 years ago. Strewn over a wide swath of present-day Namibia 230 miles long, it is one of the largest meteorite falls in the world. Its first recorded discovery was in 1836, but the local Nama people had made tools from it for generations. Like all iron meteorites, Gibeon contains remnants of the core portions of distant planets, but its exact origin in the universe is unknown.

 

The Namibian government banned the export of the meteorite in 2004. Therefore, David Yurman only uses specimens acquired before that date.

The meteorite is composed of an iron-nickel
alloy that reveals a woven matrix pattern
when cut. Formed by interwoven bands of
kamacite and taenite that have cooled over
millions of years, this crystalline structure
cannot be found on our planet.

Evan Yurman, David and Sybil’s son and the company’s Chief Creative Officer,
chose Gibeon meteorite for its unique markings and patterns—each specimen
is beautifully one-of-a-kind. Paired with sterling silver or 18 karat gold, the rings,
amulets, and bracelets have an artisanal quality that is completely contemporary.
Wearing meteorite, some of the oldest material known to mankind,
completes a universal connection with time and space.
