~ Dinosaur bone cab ~

Offered here is cabochon cut from 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 replaced with a striking shade of brilliant reddish-orange silica. Each cell is framed by a web of the actual cell walls, now jet black in color, forever frozen in time. A close look reveals that several cells have subtle fortifications, like tiny agates. Gem bone in this strongly saturated crimson hue is most sought-after by collectors and designers alike, and is certainly one of my personal favorites; no doubt you'll love it, too! Please click the pics to view the closer shots. The stone has a nicely rounded dome of 5mm, and a graceful designer 'crescent' shape that's polished both front and back.

Size: 46x20mm
Weight: approximately 40 carats
