DescriptionSet of 3 Polished "Gem" Dinosaur Bone Slabs
Jurassic, Morrison Formation
This triumvirate of large "gem" Dinosaur Bone slabs were recently cut from a large "knuckle" of a rough bone. Looking somewhat like slabs of raw meat, they are indeed polished "gem" Dinosaur Bone. The core of each slice, which accounts for most of the surface area, is a rich, blood red in a kidney pattern outlined by a muted blackish border. The pieces are not exactly uniform in size with the largest measuring a good 10 inches (25.4 cm). The others are slightly smaller in length. This is a lot of material, and each "steak" alone would be a significant specimen of its own accord.
Overall Measurements: 10.0 x 6.0 x 0.5 inches (25.4 x 15.3 x 1.4 cm)
Offered at no reserve.
