Dinosaur Bone Pendant



Dinosaur Bone pendants are not something you see too often and whilst we cant say exactly what type of dinosaur it came from, we can tell you that as polished gemstones go it's pretty unique.

Dinosaur bone goes by a few different names one of which is agatized dinosaur bone which is a more accurate description of what this material actually is.  Dinosaur Bone formed through a process called permineralisation which is a process of fossilisation that involves minerals such as agate, chalcedony, quartz and pyrite replacing the organic tissue in the original bone whilst cell walls remained relatively intact. Petrifaction then follows and this word comes from Ancient Greek and literally means "wood turned into stone".

What's actually happening is that dissolved minerals being carried by groundwater fill spaces and voids in the organic material and after the water has dried up, all that's left is the minerals which by this time have solidified.  Petrified wood also known as fossilised wood is another material that's been through a very similar process.

The vast majority of dinosaur bone is found in Utah and Colorado and as well as having a distinctive appearance, it also has a unique texture.

Although quite large this dinosaur bone pendant has a slim design and is relatively light weight.  It has been crafted by hand for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting and makes an eye catching piece of jewellery and a great topic of conversation.
