3.65" Polished Agatized Dinosaur (Gembone) Sphere - Utah

This is large section of agatized Sauropod dinosaur bone that's been polished into the shape of a sphere. The bone was collected from the Morrison Formation of Utah. The polish is excellent and allows for display of the bone cell structures. Comes with pictured 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). 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.
