Description

    Dinosaur Bone
    Jurassic, Morrison Formation
    Utah

    Fossils do not always have to be complete to be interesting and fascinating. Dinosaur bone may be the best example, as even just a chunk, especially when part or all of it is polished, can evoke the imagination. This specimen is a relatively sizable piece that has a polished surface, yet there are other noteworthy features. The color, especially where revealed by the polishing, is primarily a purple hue, which is not terribly common with "gem" dinosaur bone, where red tends to be the dominant color. In addition, the rough side has solid preservation, while the porous nature is easily seen and felt. This is simply a nice big chunk of polished Dinosaur Bone.
    Overall Measurements: 8.7 x 5.5 x 3.0 inches (22.0 x 14.0 x 7.5 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.
