A really wonderful freeform shaped, one of a kind, bead pendant I made out of genuine Fossil Woolly Mammoth Tusk! Measurements in the title. Drill hole is 2.5mm. CHAIN NOT INCLUDED. Keep this material away from exposure to big changes moisture or temperature which is bad for organic gemstones like this and can cause them to crack. This material is natural and is NOT stablized.
This material is collected in Alaska. Fossil Mammoth tusks and teeth are found in the banks of streams, by mineral miners removing overburden as well as by others who scour the tundra looking to collect this beautiful and rare material. Woolly Mammoths died out about 10,000 years ago and using this organic gemstone does not threaten any endangered species. Metaphysically, fossil mammoth tusk or tooth helps one connect with the wisdom of the ancients and helps prepare oneself spiritually for mega mammal extinctions.
FOSSIL ivory, teeth, and bone from walrus, mammoth, and mastodon are perfectly LEGAL to buy, work, sell, and wear almost everywhere in United States. However, there are now fossil specific state sales bans in NY, NJ, CA, and HI. We won't ship to those states, nor will we ship overseas. Sorry.
