Dinosaur Bone Pendant

 

 

Dinosaur Bone also known as agatised dinosaur bone or just plain old dino bone (in the USA) has to rank in the top ten of most unusual gemstones featured in a piece of jewellery.  Agatised dinosaur bone is a more accurate description of what this material actually is and for those familiar with petrified wood, it's very similar to that.  Dinosaur Bone formed through permineralisation which is a process of fossilisation that involves different minerals replacing the organic tissue in the original dinosaur bone.  The process which follows which you may be more familiar with is known as petrifaction.  What's actually happening is that minerals dissolved in groundwater fill spaces in the organic material and after having dried up, just the minerals are left behind which by this time have solidified.

Most of the world's dinosaur bone comes from Utah and Colorado.

This highly polished deep chestnut brown coloured stone has been mounted in a slightly chunkier sterling silver setting.  It's a light weight piece of jewellery that will certainly be a great topic for conversation.
