Description
~ Dinosaur bone cab ~

Offered here is an interesting 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 replaced with bluish agate, and each is framed with a lattice-like network of webbing in tan and black. Those are the actual cell walls, and they're quite distinct here. I must say the photos fall short of illustrating the depth of the many subtly fortified pools, and the camera was only able to capture a hint of their translucent nature. Please note: The cab is darker in hand. It has a high and well rounded dome, a gracefully curved designer shape, and a slick, glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 55x28mm
Weight: approximately 68 carats
