Dinosaur Bone Sterling Silver Cufflinks
Fossils aren't actually the bones of ancient creatures themselves, but their stone replacements. Fossils are created by the slow replacement of bone molecules with the mineral molecules of ground water. Depending on conditions, this process can sometimes even preserve the delicate structure of the bones. Other times, the bone dissolves completely, leaving an imprint on the rocks they once lay upon. Teeth and bones are the hardiest parts of vertebrate's bodies. They survive long after everything else has rotted away or been eaten. With the exception of footprints, skeletal remains are the most common fossils to find. However, very few animals of the millions that lived have ever become fossilised, making fossils a rare find!
