Pyrite Dinosaur Bone fossil designer gem 2/21/2018 01 - 54 x 25 x 5.4 mm - 82 carats - Here is one of the most rare and expensive materials in the world of lapidary and fossils. This jaw dropping paisley flame shaped designer gem is cut from a slice of a large dinosaur bone that was replaced mostly with pyrite and a little agate. I've always wanted to cut this super beautiful stuff but never had a chance until I got some about a year ago. It took me this long to decide how to cut the first cabochon but now, here it is. I only bought a small slab. There will be a few more but this will be the largest and probably the best of them. This unique, once in a lifetime, enviable treasure has a beautifully rounded low dome, girdled sides and a flat beveled back all with a beautiful golden super reflective and glossy metallic luster. There are a few very minor flaws along the back bevel that do not detract form the outstanding quality and beauty of this amazing, highly desirable and highly collectible piece. I can imagine the possibilities of the glorious pendant this would make. Here's a video clip to see the stone in motion: $830.00 shipped to USA - paypal
