Agatized Dinosaur Gembone

That rocks!  (sorry, couldn't help myself)

A variety of quartz called agate has filled the bone’s pore space. Fossils with this preservation are largely found in dinosaurs, especially sauropods, from the Jurassic Morrison Formation in states like Wyoming, Utah, and colorado.


  1. That piece of fossilized t-rex would look AWESOME on the desk in my den.

  2. Absolutely amazing. Things like this make this blog excellent! I'd never heard of this before, too cool.
