Fossilized dinosaur bone has been around for millions of years but creating jewelry from the colorful bone has only become popular in the last few years. The dinosaurs roamed the Earth for around 120 million years and became extinct about 70 million years ago. The fossilization of dinosaur bones occurs when the organism dies and is quickly covered by sediment, mud, lava or ash and the remains are preserved in an oxygen free environment until petrification can begin. In rare cases the organic bone material is replaced with agate (quartz) when ground water percolates through the remains of the dinosaur and deposits minerals in the cavities down to the cellular level. Agatized bone is a rare form of fossilized dinosaur bone with most of the bone found in earthtones and grays. It is estimated that only 5% of all agatized bone discovered is brightly colored reds, yellows, oranges, greens, blues and whites. Top quality dinosaur bone jewelry is made from the best quality agatized dinosaur bone also known as gembone.
