Luckily this stuff also takes a really spiffy polish ......with the M-5 of course. happy.gif

MIGHTY nice dino bone!

That is showy and pretty. I predict that it won't last long in the store.

Thought I'd stop in this thread and let ya'll know that that killer first piece did make it to the Miners Market and just in time for holiday gift season too. You can visit the Miners Market anytime to see the new products here. ColoradoProspector.com Miners Market

Added to the new pendants section as it ended up wrapped in a sweet little 14k gold filled wire wrap. Just needs your choice of chain and viola! biggrin.gif

This grade of Dino bone is very hard to find any where, the colors/patterns are just WOW!!

We are going to be adding this set to the "Stash Compartment". When set, they will make a great pair of earings, a ring and a pendant. When held up to the light, you can see the Agate pockets that replaced the marrow in the bone. Amazing stones!!

I personally like to use tin oxide for dino bones. What is M-5?

I agree, Tin Oxide on leather is the best for polishing. thumbsupsmileyanim.gif M-5 is a premixed polish we use to sell in the Miners Market.

Thanks Rich,
Dino bone fossils are often found in the Morrison formations geologically speaking if I remember my reading right. There are some great colors out there but finding rough on the ground can be tricky legally. (surface collecting is allowed.... I believe)
I heard of a private ranch that will let you dig for them near the state line in Utah. Many Dino bones and coprolites (dino crap) are found in the four corners areas of both states where the Morrison formation is outcropped often.

The pieces in this thread were all cut from a very old piece out of my grandfathers collection of lapidary rough. Like I said though, there are many many colors out there and some rock shops may have a hidden trove of them if you're in the right areas. I past up a really cool blue one a few years ago at a shop that I'm still kickin' myself in the butt for not gettin' today. smiley-laughing021.gif and it was only $20 bucks slaphead.gif

Here is a beautiful pair of earrings! The stones are 8 mm cabbed by Dan and set in Sterling Silver by SunSpirit Designs. thumbsupsmileyanim.gif
Good job guys! You can find this pair of Earrings in the Miners Market.

happy.gif Here is a ring I had made for Dan. He cabbed the stone and Mark (Sunspirit) set it in this beautiful ring he made. Turned out great I think but the pictures don't do it justice.
