The dinosaur bone in this ring came from the Colorado Plateau in Utah and was a living animal around 144 to 208 million years ago during the Jurassic Period . It is not actual bone but is a combination of minerals that replaced the dinosaur bone over a long span of time. Dinosaur bone is found in a rainbow of colors with the webbing color and cell size varying greatly from piece to piece. The varying cell size and colors of the dinosaur bone create some truly unique patterns and virtually one of a kind pieces of jewelry. The fossilized dinosaur bone can be composed of many different minerals including agate, jasper and calcite. Dinosaur bone color is determined by the combination of minerals present when the fossilized bone was formed. Some colors are more rare than others with multicolor cells in a nice pattern being the most sought after and commanding the highest price. High quality dinosaur bone has a hardness of 6-7 on the Moh’s scale and takes a great polish for jewelry. Top grade gem dinosaur bone is eventually going to become impossible to get because, as you might have guessed, they aren’t making it any more and collecting is only allowed on private land.
