Agatized Dinosaur Bone Cab

This is a beautiful cab of agatized dinosaur bone, ready to be made into jewelry. The polishing allows the internal cell structure of the bone to be easily seen. 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 at a private quarry near Dinosaur, CO. 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.
