Authentic Dinosaur Bone!

This piece of actual dinosaur bone was discovered near Bouarfa, Morocco which would encompass the Late Cretaceous, Kem Kem Beds. From the Jurassic epoch approximately 160 million years old. This piece is probably from a Sauropod or "long-neck" type dinosaur, the largest land animals to ever live. This fossil was legally collected on private property with the permission of the landowner.
Agatized dinosaur bone is a rare form of fossilized dinosaur bone where the original fossilized bone has been re-mineralized (replaced) with silica based compounds (agate, jasper, chalcedony, or opal). The agatized bone is either found as fragments on the surface from bones or partial bones that have long since been destroyed by exposure to the elements, or as broken and tumbled chunks in event layers of the quarry. It could have come from any of a number of dinosaurs from this formation, though sometimes based on cell size and outer appearance the type can be narrowed down. Based on the size of the cells as well as other features of the bone it is almost certainly Sauropod in origin.
