Description

  • Woolly Mammoth Tooth
  • Pleistocene Age
  • Found in Alaska
  • This is a VERY NICE and VERY SOLID cross-section of a Mammoth Tooth.  The specimen has been sliced and displays the chewing surface of the tooth on one side, and a polished surface on the other side which shows off the pattern of the tooth.  Absolutely gorgeous!  This specimen has been infused with a cyanoacrylate that has made this specimen rock solid!!  The specimen measures approx.  4 7/8″ long x 2 13/16″ wide.

 

At the present time it is ILLEGAL to sell and ship ANY Mammoth Ivory in ANY form to New Jersey & New York.   Both states ban the sale, trade, barter and purchase of all ivory, including fossil ivory. The legislation also bans the sale of Rhino Horns.  Effective July 1st, 2016 it is illegal to sell and ship ANY Mammoth Ivory in ANY form to California.   While Indiana9 Fossils fully understands and supports the attempts to protect MODERN elephants by enacting these laws, it is preposterous that they have banned the sale of Mammoth Ivory!  There are rock solid ways to determine modern ivory versus fossil ivory which would allow law enforcement to differentiate between the 2, but it is presumed that they opted to throw the baby out with the bath water to save themselves the trouble of having to look at the ivory to make that determination.  If you do not agree with the bans please contact your local politicians and let your voice be heard.  We will update this information with changes to the present laws or if additional states enact similar laws.
