"Easily Missed"  "Searching along the Arctic river, it is easy to overlook a fossil when it resembles the limestone in close proximity.  This 'specimen' is from a mature bull 'Woolly Mammoth.'  They are specimens for pathological study and not utilized in sculpture. 'Occasionally, certain teeth do have remarkably large roots and are of the most beautiful color, sometimes it is the root system that remains in some eroded teeth and are then used in jewelry...most lovely."

  1. That tooth must be huge! In my eyes it's blasphemy to do jewelery stuff with that tooth. In my eyes it's just perfect how it is <3
