~ Dinosaur bone cab suite ~

Offered here is a deluxe matching suite of cabochons 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 bright reddish-orange silica, with a few splashes of yellow. Each cell is framed by a web of the actual cell walls, jet black, forever frozen in time. The bright yellow cores in some of the cells make them look like tiny fortified agates, which they are! This colorful crimson is a most sought-after hue, and is certainly my personal favorite; no doubt you'll love it, too. Please click the pics to view the closer shots. The large cab has a high rounded dome of 8mm, while the smaller pair are 3.5mm thick. Each of the three stones has a graceful designer 'flame' shape, and an excellent glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 49x23mm, 20x11mm pair
Weight: approximately 75 carats total
