Dinosaur Bone Rings
100% authentic dinosaur bone is the perfect choice for the man with a soft spot for the ferocious species. Available in several colors and patterns, each ring is as unique as the dinosaur it came from.
Is a Dinosaur Bone Ring Real?
Yes. You may be a casual Jurassic Park fan or still go to bed in your T-Rex pajamas. Regardless, you will be amazed to learn we source 100% genuine fossilized dinosaur bone in our rings. The fossils come from big stones called gembone, which on the surface look just like regular rocks. But looks can be deceiving, as these rocks are anywhere from 65 million to 230 million years old. We are talking about some material that is so ancient you can’t wrap your head around it.
When cut into, the rocks reveal a stunning, glasslike surface of dinosaur remains. Petrification has preserved the cellular structure of these dinosaur bones. The result is breathtaking and unique to the individual gembone.
Agatized dinosaur bone is a rare form of fossil. The fossil has been remineralized after originally being fossilized via calcite permineralization. Permineralization is when groundwater flows through organic remains and opens up cells and pores for petrification. Silica and calcite are the minerals that enter and start the petrification process and are responsible for nearly all fossils that exist today.
Are you bored yet? It gets better, so stay with us here. A cluster of mountains formed about 35 million years ago in the Colorado Plateau region of the Western United States. When this happened, a ton of super-hot groundwater infiltrated the strata layers where the petrified dinosaur fossils were, creating an ultra-rare situation called an “aqueous intrusion.”
This environment replaced the calcite present in the fossils with silica, eventually resulting in layers upon layers of beautiful gembone.
So, after a process 200 million-plus years in the making, there exists some genuinely spectacular dinosaur bone in the good old USA.
Dinosaur Bone is incredible because no one specimen is like the other. Depending on the mineral deposits present in the soil where the fossils were found, the appearance of these stones can vary dramatically. For example, copper will create a blue or green color pattern, while iron will turn the bones red, black, or brown. Sulfur present in the crystallization process will turn the fossil yellow, while manganese will elicit pink and other Easter egg-like palettes.
The Dinosaur Bone Collection
Once the gembone is cut to expose the glassy surface of the dinosaur fossil, the stone is then ground up so the bone can be set into the ring. The dinosaur bone is coated with a protective resin material, and the result is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind ring.
Check out the Arthur. Fossilized slate grays and blues are beautifully inlaid and strike a balance between rustic and sophisticated. You can pair the dinosaur bone with durable tungsten carbide for extra protection from the elements.
Then there is the Ray. This ring is almost what you would expect dinosaur bone to look like: reptilian, scaly, it’s like nature’s camouflage. Not to mention, this is some OG camo we’re talking about here. It is millions of years old, after all.
Care & Considerations
Dinosaurs were fierce, dangerous creatures that ruled the world once upon a time, but even they were wiped out by a giant asteroid. Your dinosaur bone ring is equally amazing, but it can be damaged. Like other fossilized stones, it should not be exposed to corrosive or acidic materials, such as rubbing alcohol.
For proper cleaning and maintenance, use mild soap and warm water to keep your dinosaur bone ring looking as bright as it did 68 million years ago. Also try to avoid smashing it against hard surfaces, as the fossilized stone could chip. You don’t want to be responsible for the next dinosaur (bone) extinction, do you?
