~ Dinosaur bone cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon cut from fossilized dinosaur bone, from Utah. This exceptionally well-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 crimson red silica. Each cell is framed by a web of the actual cell walls, now deep, warm brown in color, forever frozen in time; some areas of the webbing have a slight metallic sheen. A close look reveals that several of the cells contain subtle fortifications, much 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 details. The stone has a nicely rounded dome of 6.5mm, and a crisp & curvy designer shape that's polished to a brilliant luster both front and back.

Size: 55x25mm
Weight: approximately 57 carats
