DescriptionPolished "Gem" Dinosaur Vertebra
Jurassic, Morrison Formation
This piece of "gem" Dinosaur Bone is, simply, superlative. It is a nearly complete, compressed vertebra with a polished "key hole" shaped surface that exhibits a fiery blend of colors. Not only red, but a rare, mustard-yellow dominates the preserved vascular structure of this exceptional specimen. Large marrow spaces are revealed under the smooth polished face of this vertebra. The combination of quality and of color makes this a very collectible piece. While not a particularly sizable specimen at 4 inches (10 cm) from front to back, it has lots to offer and is an amazing example of the "gem" material.
Overall Measurements: 4.2 x 3.7 x 1.6 inches (10.7 x 9.5 x 4.2 cm)
Offered at no reserve.
