Sterling Silver Pendant with Fossil Dinosaur Bone and Sunstone, Handmade, One of a Kind
This beautifully polished fossil dinosaur bone gets its color from minerals in the soil as the natural bone was replaced by chalcedony (quartz) over the millenia. This created agatized dinosaur bone or dinosaur gembone, as it's known in the rock trade.
I built the stone's setting by creating a birch leaf print on sterling silver sheet and hand sawed the pattern, forging a bail at the top. By adding a small sunstone I brought out the lovely peach hue I could see in the gembone.
I've included a sterling silver hand stamped tag identifying the stone you're wearing. It's on an open jumpring which may be removed from the end of the extender chain if you wish.
