The dinosaur bone in this ring came from the Colorado Plateau in Utah and was a living animal around 144 to 208 million years ago during the Jurassic Period . It is not actual bone but is a combination of minerals that replaced the dinosaur bone over a long span of time. Dinosaur bone is found in a rainbow of colors with the webbing color and cell size varying greatly from piece to piece. The varying cell size and colors of the dinosaur bone create some truly unique patterns and virtually one of a kind pieces of jewelry. The fossilized dinosaur bone can be composed of many different minerals including agate, jasper and calcite. Dinosaur bone color is determined by the combination of minerals present when the fossilized bone was formed. Some colors are more rare than others with multicolor cells in a nice pattern being the most sought after and commanding the highest price. High quality dinosaur bone has a hardness of 6-7 on the Moh's scale and takes a great polish for jewelry. Top grade gem dinosaur bone is eventually going to become impossible to get because, as you might have guessed, they aren't making it any more and the collection of dinosaur bone is only allowed on private land.

Additional Policies and FAQs
RING SIZING -- VERY IMPORTANT!!
Inlay rings are difficult to re-size without damaging the inlay. If you need the ring in a size other than the size listed on the item, a new matching ring will be custom made in your finger size. We have done this for 40 years with no complaints about the accuracy of the match. It is very important that you give us your correct size when ordering as it is difficult to adjust the size without using a laser welder and risking damage to the ring. The paper finger sizers you might find on the internet and print out are not accurate. We have experimented and found that they vary from 1/4 to 3/4 of a size in error. Please visit a local jeweler and get your finger sized properly. We depend on you, the customer, to provide us with the correct size so please do not estimate or guess. Special order size rings are NOT RETURNABLE. If you are giving the ring as a gift, we suggest purchasing the stock ring (if not sold) for presentation and visiting a jeweler to get your finger sized asap. Then order the ring in the special order size and return the stock ring for matching. Please notify us if the ring is a gift and you might be returning it for another size so we can have the materials ready to speed up the process of making a new one.

REACTION TO COPPER
Sterling silver may react with your body chemistry and turn your finger green where the ring contacts the skin. If you have a tendency to react to silver you might want to consider ordering our jewelry in stainless steel or tarnish resistant Continuum sterling silver upgrade. Please understand that we have no way of knowing if you are part of the small percentage of the population that could experience the "green finger" reaction. We do not accept special order ring size returns due to a copper reaction. Should this occur a simple fix is to paint the inside of the ring with clear nail polish to create a barrier between your skin and the silver. Reapply as needed.
