Stones from space have more history to them than just flying through the cosmos. While we use meteorite to create unique meteorite jewelry, the use of the material dates back quite a ways. Today we use the extraterrestrial iron to make meteorite rings - while in the past, the rare material was used to make meteorite knives and tools. The material was praised for it's origin by many ancient people. It was used in objects for ceremony and hunting.
The biggest example of meteorite's practical use was in Namibia by the San people. After the gibeon meteorite shattered into pieces over several hundreds of kilometers in Namibia, the iron was used to make spears and meteorite knives. These pieces are now either in circulation outside of South Africa or on display in Windhoek. Namibia's Capital, Windhoek showcases the original remains in it's city center.
The oldest, and the most recently discovered, use of meteorite in tools was byKing Tutankhamen himself. King Tut's tomb actually contained a knife made of metal with a very high amount of Nickel, Cobalt, and Iron. In fact, ancient Egyptians celebrated meteorites by using them in ceremonial ornaments. With the way Egyptians worshiped the rare iron, it only makes sense for King Tutankhamen to be buried with a meteorite knife.
