Fossilized Dinosaur Bone

Agatized fossilized dinosaur bone is extremely rare as it was petrified with crystals during the fossilization process. This process preserved the original cell structure of the dinosaur in the fossil, which can be found in its original bone shape. Due to impurities that were in the surrounding sediment, the fossils range in color from lavender to black with red, yellow, brown and blue. The Colorado Plateau is the only source of agatized fossilized dinosaur bone in the world, which ranges from 146 to 156 million years old and correlates with the Late Jurassic Age.
