Bone collagen dating
Its geologic location was the Hell Creek Formation in the State of Montana, United States of America.
When it was learned in 2005 that Triceratops and Hadrosaur femur bones in excellent condition were discovered by the Glendive (MT) Dinosaur & Fossil Museum, Hugh Miller asked and received permission to saw them in half and collect samples for C-14 testing of any bone collagen that might be extracted.
But frankly, even the healthiest diets are quite low in collagen, because only a small number of foods have a significant amount of it.
All of the above are great collagen boosters, but none of them compare to the greatest collagen booster in the world, which is collagen itself that comes from sources including chicken broth, beef broth, wild fish broth and eggshell membranes.
The data was challenged by Thomas Stafford as poor science due to assumed contamination from modern C-14 with younger surficial calcium carbonate.
Accelerated Mass Spectrometer (AMS) dating of dinosaur bone bio-apatite from 170 grams of bone fragments and milligram surface scrapings of an Acrocanthosaurus dinosaur gave ages of 25,750 ± 280 and 23,760 ± 270 respectively.
The 960 cm- cm-1 peaks represent phosphate anion stretching in the bone mineral and amide carbonyl stretching in the collagen, respectively.
There’s a reason that collagen supplementation, in addition to an overall healthy diet and lifestyle, is being dubbed as the new essential in the wellness and beauty community.
Many people’s collagen is breaking down at an accelerated rate…
Bone samples were characterized for collagen quality using well-established elemental abundance analyses (i.e., percentage nitrogen and C: N) as the primary criteria for classification.
FT-Raman spectra were collected from outer surfaces and freshly cut cross-sections of both well-preserved and poorly-preserved historic mammal bones.
Indeed both bones contained collagen and conventional dates of 30,890 ± 380 radiocarbon years (RC) for the Triceratops and 23,170 ±170 RC years for the Hadrosaur were obtained using the Accelerated Mass Spectrometer (AMS).
