The Gibeon Meteorite History:

Collision with earth is unknown but estimated to be 200-400 million years ago in the Gibeon area of Namibia, Africa during prehistoric times. Found in 1836 by a British explorer, Captain J.E. Alexander, although natives were familiar with these "metal rocks" for hundreds of years. Estimated, by radiometric dating, to be 4 billion years old and thought to be debris from an exploding super nova.
