Dinosaur bones are the remains of ancient animals that roamed the Earth millions of years ago. These remains have turned to stone through a process of fossilization known as petrification. This happens when spaces of the bone are filled with minerals such as Quartz, for example. Over a very long period of time the organic minerals decay which leaves a mineral cast that preserves some of the fibrous and cellular structures of the bone. The different colors which can be seen within this stone were created by a variety of minerals that were introduced during the mineralization process.
This dinosaur bone palm stone is beautiful and fits right in your hand with a semi-smooth finish. I love running my fingers all over the stone as it feels very soothing. There are so many little patterns and details to appreciate while observing this stone. It sparks a sense of wonder within the imagination and it invites us to take a deeper look into the land before our time.
