Description

    Set of 3 Polished "Gem" Dinosaur Bone Slabs
    Jurassic
    Morrison Formation
    Utah, USA

    This Lot consists of three huge slabs of colorful and well-preserved "gem" Dinosaur bone which were all cut from the same larger rough piece. The trio of "steaks" feature primarily red coloration in the core to black near the peripheral edge. The vascular structure of the original bone has been preserved in a very detailed way with the beautiful pattern across the entire smooth surface of the expertly polished pieces. All three slabs have a similar shape with a pronounced curvature to one edge, while the flat side shows a unique linear tab of varying lengths among the grouping. The significant slabs, the largest of which is just under 14 inches (35.56 cm) in length, are also rather thick with a depth of nearly one half inch (1.27 cm). These related pieces of "gem" Dinosaur bone are simply very attractive and exhibit excellent preservation.
    Overall Measurements: 13.78 x 6.69 x 0.48 inches (35.00 x 17.00 x 1.23 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $1,200 - $1,800.
