Do you want to know something fascinating?
This is a picture of Dinosaur bone that I purchased a week ago. Dinosaur Bone, like these, used in jewelry is actually called gembone. Gembone has been described as one of the most rare and beautiful fossils in the world! A gembone is the fossil of an animal bone that contains gem quality minerals. The different colors and very unique pattern in gembones are caused by minerals such as chlorite, chromium, iron-oxide and manganese. Gembone is also commonly referred to as mineralized dinosaur bone, silicified dinosaur bone and agatized fossil. These gembone specimens can be traced back to dinosaurs that roamed the earth many, many years ago!
Learning about stones & even FOSSILS is one of the favorite parts of my job!
