~ Dinosaur bone cab ~

Offered here is a superb cabochon of fossilized dinosaur bone, from Utah. This highly silicated material is many millions of years old, and it is a marvelous example of the natural preservation of our earth's ancient, extinct 'thunder lizards'. The cells in this fossil bone have been completely replaced with sky blue agate, and each is framed with a lattice-like network of webbing in jet black. Those are the actual cell walls, and they're quite clear and distinct here. Quite a number of the cells are beautifully fortified with subtle bands, like tiny translucent agate nodules complete with mauve or darker blue hearts, while others have sparkly crystalline cores. There are also a few peach colored cells at the bottom of one side. This is an example of some of the most desireable and collectible gem bone around, and I wish I had a truckload of it! The cab has a generously high and well rounded dome of 7.5mm, a fancy designer 'flame' shape, polished both front and back.

Size: 50x28mm
Weight: approximately 61 carats
