Mammoth Molar Jewelry Tiles
Stabilized with resin
Size: Size is approximate for each piece. Choose from tile or block option.
Listing is for a single piece of material. Jewelry tile will be a piece of our choosing the patterns are similar but not exact to the one pictured.
These small tiles/blocks are great for jewelry, earrings, rings, knife bolsters or spacers, inlays, beads and more.
Each of these pieces is cut off of a larger piece of mammoth molar. The molars are first stabilized with resin, then cut and then each individual piece is cast in resin again. This produces a more durable material, however, this also results in resin on the outside of the block so each piece may require surface sanding in order to remove the resin from the surface before attaching to a handle.
Some pieces may not be perfectly rectangular, may be missing corners etc.
These 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. These Fossils are commonly used for knife handle scales, pistol grips, jewelry, inlays, accessories and other precious objects.
Working with mammoth 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. 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 Mammoth Fossils with cyanoacrylics (Super Glue) after grinding followed by additional fine sanding and polishing for a smoother and stronger result.
