~ Dinosaur bone cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of fossilized dinosaur bone, from Utah. This highly silicated material is many millions of years old, a marvelous example of the natural preservation of our earth's ancient, extinct 'thunder lizards'. Over millennia, the cells in this fossil bone have been completely replaced with nuanced shades of bluish agate. The cells are framed by a web of the actual cell walls, now brown/black/grayish in color, forever frozen in time. There are some neat paler blue 'cores', subtly sparkly, within some of the cells, making them look like tiny fortified agates. Which they are! The stone is also surprisingly translucent, despite its 7mm thickness; please click the pics to view the closer shots. The cab has a well rounded dome, a fat designer 'flame' shape, and an excellent glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 52x29mm
Weight: approximately 77 carats
