Combine a dinosaur and a meteorite a what do you get?


No, not a dinosaur extinction event!  If you’re jewelrybyjohan, you’ll get a one-of-a-kind ring.  The Dinosaur Bone/Gibeon Meteorite ring featured in this Etsy shop is made of titanium, 14K gold, dinosaur bone from the Morrison Formation in Utah, and fragments of the Gibeon meteorite that has been etched with acid to reveal the crystal structure.  jewlerybyjohan says the Morrison Formation covers “600,000 square miles over several states, found to be the most fertile source of dinosaur fossils in North America. These specimens date back to the Jurassic Era, minimum 65 million years ago. It has petrified into stone as jasper and agate as it fossilized.”  The ring is available in sizes 4-16 and all sizes have a “comfort fit”.  Pricing starts at $1,657.00; you’ll need to contact them for a quote determined by the size and width of the ring you want to order.
