Description

Mammoth Molar & Tusk

Stabilized.  Ivory blocks will have gaps and cracks filled with black resin.

Color will be a random color of our choice.  

These small blocks are great for jewelry, earrings, rings, knife bolsters or spacers, inlays, beads and more.

Size:  Size is approximately for each piece. Choose from small or large option.

Listing is for one mini block. Price is per piece.

Each of these pieces is cut off of a larger mammoth molar or tusk.  The molars/tusks are stabilized and dyed.  This produces a more durable material, however, this also may result in resin on the outside of the tooth so each piece will require a light sanding in order to remove the resin from the surface before attaching to a handle.  

*Dimensions and exact shape for each individual piece may vary. Some pieces may not be perfectly rectangular, may be missing corners etc.

Fossils are genuine mammoth fossils. They date all the way back to the last ice age (10,000-40,000 BP). Needless to say, this rare material is in itself very special. For that reason it also makes unique products even more special. Occasionally, tusks, molars and bones are found from these iconic mammoths.  All of the treatments stabilize the fossils with vacuum, high pressure and strong resins. Meanwhile, the resins used differ depending on the material. Nonetheless, they all result in a stronger material that is useful for a wide array of luxury products. These fossils are most commonly used for fine handles. We also recommend them for jewelry, inlays, accessories and other precious objects.

Working with fossil materials:

The fossils are not yet petrified. However they do contain natural minerals and are harder to work than non-fossil material. Mammoth Ivory is the softest of the three. We recommend that you process it with normal tools for bone and horn. Our Mammoth Bone is harder than the ivory. Yet, it is still processed with the same equipment. Finally,  Mammoth Molar is the hardest of the three because of its enamel layers. We recommend diamond tools for this. Alternatively, use tools for hard steel at low process speed if diamond tools are not available. We also recommend saturating the surface of all  Fossils with cyanoacrylics (Super Glue) after grinding followed by additional fine sanding and polishing for a smoother and stronger result.
