Agatized barite. Some people say dino poop

Very good…apparently I should have posted it here and saved some frustration. I was also told repeatedly that it was coprolite or dino bone but knew those were wrong. I have seen plenty of both and none has looked even close to this. I had gotten it at an estate sale and it was already cut and polished. If the exterior had not been ground it would have been easier to identify. Do you know of a source to get more that is not all fractured?

Sure is pretty poop!

Sorry Bill but this one is not poop.

Never heard of agatized barite before. Sounds like a misnomer... But pretty any way you look at it.


Steve - technically it is an agate pseudomorph after barite from the Yellow Cat area of Utah.
