~ Dinosaur bone cab ~

Offered here is a large 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 reddish-orange silica, with a few pink cells along the stone's outer curve. Each cell is framed by a web of the actual cell walls, deep brown to brownish-green in color, forever frozen in time. A close look reveals that there are a few crystalline cells with a hint of amethystine lavender coloration. Gem bone in this saturated crimson hue is most sought-after, 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 high rounded dome of 7mm, a bold designer 'crescent' shape, and a super smooth glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 53x21mm
Weight: approximately 67 carats
