Dinictis Saber Tooth Cat Skull

This Dinictis skull still has its fangs in tact with some enamel chipping and clean teeth tips. There appears to be some restoration on the skull which of course is not uncommon. There are still remains of the matrix, particularly seen in the mouth/jaw. The color is a light beige, common for this location in South Dakota. While this may not be the highest grade museum quality specimen we have offered, this is still an awesome specimen and well-known predator skull to acquire.

Natural Elestial Citrine - Zambia
Learn More

A rare elestial formation of natural citrine. Fully natural, the crystals have not been polished or cut at all. The crystals have exceptional clarity and color. Because this cluster hasn't been altered- a few of the terminations do have minor chips and imperfections, but in our opinion- it all adds to the beauty of the specimen. The base (matrix) has been cut flat for easy display. 

Measurements: ~7" long x 5-1/2" wide x 4-3/4" tall 

Location: Zambia
