Yes, this necklace is made of genuine coprolite, from a dinosaur, no less! Coprolite is the scientific word for fossilized animal dung. Who would have thought it would be so beautiful?

This stone is agatized dinosaur dung, where the original organic material is replaced with agate stone over time. In this case, we don't know the species of dinosaur but the green makes it clear it was a plant eater; the deposits are millions of years old & were found in Utah. Coprolite is relatively difficult to acquire in bead form, so I am thrilled to offer some in my shop.

This piece of coprolite has a combination of greens & beiges with a bit of orange & white - please note that the colours may vary slightly on your monitor. The fossil is 3.8 cm (1 1/2 inches) long. I've wrapped the pendant stone with sterling silver wire & placed it on a 48 cm (19 inch) sterling silver curb chain that ends in a lobster clasp.

You can also add a silver-tone dinosaur charm to the necklace, as shown in the photos. The charm options are shown in the 4th photo and measure as follows:

- dinosaur skull (shown), almost 1 inch (2.2 cm) long
- duck-billed/hadrosaur, almost 1 inch (2.3 cm) long
- stegosaurus, over 1 inch (2.7 cm) across
- T.rex/theropod, under 1 inch (2.2 cm) long
- brontosaurus/sauropod, over 1 inch (2.7 cm)

Each charm will be attached with a sterling silver ring as shown.
