7" Polished Dinosaur Bone (Gembone) Section - Colorado
This is a beautiful section of polished Late Jurassic aged dinosaur bone from Colorado. One side has been polished a mirror finish which allows for the beautiful internal cell structure to be easily seen. I has some excellent deep red coloration with red highlights. The thickness ranges from quite thin on the outer edges to about .65" thick in the center. Comes with an acrylic display stand.
Agatized dinosaur bone is a rare form of fossilized dinosaur bone where the original fossilized bone has been re-mineralized (replaced) with silica based compounds (agate, jasper, chalcedony, or opal).
It comes from the Morrison formation of Colorado and is collected from our partner private quarry. The agatized bone is either found as fragments on the surface from bones or partial bones that have long since been destroyed by exposure to the elements, or as broken and tumbled chunks in event layers of the quarry. It could have come from any of a number of dinosaurs from this formation, though sometimes based on cell size and outer appearance the type can be narrowed down.
