~ Dinosaur bone cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of 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 completely replaced with shades of bluish agate, with a few ghostly fortifications. The cells are framed by remnants of the actual cell walls, now black in color, shadowed with ochre in some areas, forever frozen in time. This gembone does show an attractive degree of translucence in more than half the stone; please click the pics to view the closer shots. The cab has a well rounded dome of 5mm, and a versatile designer shape, finished with a glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 50x18mm
Weight: approximately 37 carats

Price: SOLD See current gemstones for sale
